Alignment Jackson is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving student achievement by facilitating a city-wide partnership that supports the Jackson Public Schools' Strategic Plan.
Founded by United Way of the Capital Area, City of Jackson, Jackson Public Schools and Greater Jackson Chamber Partnership, Alignment Jackson uses a comprehensive, multifaceted, and collaborative approach that is designed to provide sustainability by focusing on systemic change and engaging stakeholders.
By aligning available expertise and programs, resources are leveraged, duplication is avoided, and efficiency is greatly increased. This results in greater returns on investment in education and, most importantly, healthier and more successful children for the city of Jackson.
