March ELAC Meeting
Thursday, March 3, 2022
Meeting ID: 912 8399 8662
Introducing Principal Jarod Scott!
Welcome to the 2020-21 school year.
I am honored and excited to serve as Principal of Kennedy High School. It is with great pride and humility that I accept this tremendous opportunity and important responsibility. Through servant-leadership and with a spirit of collaboration, transparent communication, and trust, I begin this journey with Kennedy and the greater Richmond community. It is one of my highest priorities to engage, encourage and empower our scholars in preparing them for success in college and careers. We build on the school's rich history and proud tradition and Kennedy will become the first choice school for district students.
I bring 20 years of experience and passion in teaching and learning and leading school transformation and turnaround in diverse urban schools. I graduated from Clark Atlanta University and Georgia State University, in Atlanta, GA and completed the National Institute for Urban School Leaders Program at Harvard. I remain committed to social justice, educational excellence, equity, and engagement. Most recently, I served as a Principal in Oakland, where we celebrated increased college and career readiness levels and improved graduation rates.
My vision for Kennedy is to become a world-class high school centered on learning, leadership, and innovation that prepares all scholars for college, career and community success. As a community, we commit to the following:
- We will celebrate diversity and cultivate the social and emotional needs of all students in a caring and safe environment.
- We will focus on rigorous academics, relevant and meaningful learning experiences, and caring relationships.
- We will work in partnership with students, staff, families and community stakeholders to engage, inspire, and empower all scholars.
Finally, family and work-life balance are important to me. I have a beautiful family that is extremely supportive of my work; my wife Julie of 17 years and my son Anderson. You will see them around campus supporting our programs and, on the sidelines, cheering us on during athletic events. I look forward to your input, collaboration, and partnership.
Jarod M. Scott, Principal
Kennedy High School
Please join us next week for the final round of strategic plan engagements. The following engagements will take place on May 23 at Greenwood Academy, May 24 at Hercules Middle, and May 25 at Helms Middle. Please note that all meetings are from 5:30-7:30 pm.
Join us for a community meeting to learn more about the Richmond High School Facility Master Plan on Tuesday, May 31 from 5:15 pm to 6:15 pm at Richmond High School. Also available on Zoom.
The CCSPP grant will allow WCCUSD to provide a set of universal supports to 22 community schools, focusing on the integration of positive school climate, community engagement, and instruction work.
Because the State has moved the implementation date of any student COVID-19 vaccine requirements to “no sooner” than July 1, 2023, our District will align with the state’s date of July 1, 2023, as well. Students are not required to get the COVID-19 vaccine before that date.
