Dr. Rob Jackson

Good Morning Teammates,

I am incredibly excited to begin this amazing adventure with each of you. I note that my beginning is also the fulfillment of Dr. Baldwin’s season with the school system. As he departs, amidst well-deserved celebrations, I recognize the charge he leaves behind, to continue the quest for success for every single student.

As a former student and as a former employee of this great school system, I know the caliber of teachers, administrators, and staff that the school system has brought together to serve the children of Buncombe County. I am looking forward to getting to know each of you.

To get to know you, I am embarking today on my "Listening and Learning Adventure." I will be making quick visits to all 45 schools and all school system departments over the course of the next eight school days and then will begin to spend a full school day in each school in the school system. After the holidays, I will conduct "town Hall-style" meetings in each district and online. I will also be attending Town Council meetings in each municipality and attending County Commissioner meetings. Throughout all of these visits and in each of the meetings, I will be asking three questions:

What do you love best about this school system?,
What should never change in this school system?, and
What should I be working on first?

I'll be asking you those same three questions as well when I visit your school or work location. I cannot wait to hear from you.

There is no work or purpose higher than the calling to serve children and families. The work you do is important and life-changing. I am honored by the opportunity to join you in this work as we give our all for every single student.

Thank you for all that you do for the students, families, and community of Buncombe County.

Please let me know if I may be of any assistance. Have a great week!



PS - If you would like, I would love to connect with you via social media as we share our stories of the incredible academic, artistic, and athletic success our students achieve.
