Welcome to Jolyn’s Education Corner

I am a parent in the Kingston City School District and I have a passion to help parents be informed regarding the many education issues and things to do as our children move from Kindergarten through Twelfth grade.

So many things to do and so little time!

  • Deciding what to discuss during teacher conferences
  • Helping our student with his/her homework
  • Deciding whether to opt-out/refuse the standardized tests (or why would anyone want to do that in the first place?)
  • Figuring out how Common Core State Standards might impact the education that students here in Kingston will receive
  • Dealing with bullying in our schools
  • and on the list goes!

My hope for the Education Corner is to pull information together from various places to make it easier for parents to access and also provide a place for parents to talk about topics important to our district.

Let’s make Kingston a place where parents come together and help our children receive the best possible education!

Let me know what you would like to discuss.

  1. What a great idea! Let’s continue to be a part of generating solutions, not just pointing out the problems. We the parents, grandparents, guardians, and children advocates of Kingston City School district need to be heard and our voices and efforts to build unity within our community will help to rebuild our children’s educational environment. It has been demonstrated throughout time that when students have adult help at both school, at home and in the community all students graduate and are successful both academically, athlethletically and through the arts. Thank you for your leadership and determination to foster communication through our district and our county. Happy Snow Day!
