Superintendent's Message

Jeremy H. WilliamsWelcome to Gainesville City School System, home of the Red Elephants and one of the first Charter Districts in Georgia. We are eager to partner with you as we build ONE GAINESVILLE in the schools and the community. Through collaboration and teamwork, endless possibilities exist for our students.

Our District Strategic Plan continues to refine strengths and streamline innovative solutions for all students.  Our commitment involving students, staff, families, and the community will INSPIRE, NURTURE, CHALLENGE, and PREPARE our diverse 8,000+ youth.

  1. INSPIRE by creating a positive school culture and climate.
  2. NURTURE by cultivating supportive relationships.
  3. CHALLENGE by increasing rigor and expectations.
  4. PREPARE by developing thriving community members and leaders.

These goals serve as the foundation for comprehensive services while tailoring programs to best serve each child's needs. Serving each child allows us the opportunity to showcase our diversity, relationships, and accomplishments. We are proud of the accomplishments of all of our students and you will find them through various social media outlets, including Facebook, Twitter, and program-specific websites. Our communication with each other and focused involvement benefits ONE GAINESVILLE, and its strength has no limits.

ONE GAINESVILLE will only succeed when every student has multiple advocates and every stakeholder actively pursues excellence for students in every facet.  It takes a team to develop the potential of our young people and you are important to their future.

I thank you for your commitment to the Red Elephant family and I encourage you to add value into the lives of our students and those around you.


Jeremy H. Williams, Ed.D.
