Michael Walsh

Mr. Walsh was sworn in to his first three-year term in January 2017.

As a lifelong resident of Jackson, he intends to use his knowledge and experience as a teacher and administrator to maintain the high academic standards of the Jackson School District while protecting the non-tested areas of the curriculum such as Social Studies, Foreign Language, Music, Art, Physical Education, Special Education and Vocational Education. He also wants to continue to promote more STEM-like programs and to protect extracurricular and co-curricular programs such as middle school and high school athletics, drama, band, clubs and activities.

He believes his knowledge of budgets gives him the expertise to direct tax dollars to the projects in the district where they will be most efficiently used. Among his goals is to try to cap increased spending on new programs that are not state or federally mandated and to make sure that the money we have continues to go into repairing and updating the aging facilities in our system.
