Letter From The Principal
Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Jim May
Welcome to the Special Programs Page. Special Programs include Jefferson Learning Center, SISD D.A.E.P., Grayson County Juvenile Detention Center, Grayson County Post Adjudication Facility, and Monarch Academy. Special Programs campuses are located in several locations, but have one overall vision. That vision is for our students to leave us better than when they arrived.
I am Jim May. I have been the Special Programs Principal since 2016. Chandra Allivand is our Assistant Principal. We are very fortunate to have an amazing staff. From top to bottom, our staff are driven by the desire to help our students succeed. Our theme this year is "Remember the Why". With so much noise in education, it would be easy to get distracted. We intend to stay focused on why we all started in education and direct our students towards a successful future.
We are looking forward to our BEST year yet.
