Orange County Public Schools celebrates the announcement of its 2018 Assistant Principal of the Year, Jackie Ramsey, being named a finalist for Florida Department of Education Assistant Principal of the Year. Ms. Ramsey is the assistant principal for instruction at Carver Middle School. She has worked at Carver for just over one year. She brought with her great leadership experience after working at Chain of Lakes Middle School, as well as Dr. Phillips and Freedom high schools.


Jackie Ramsey is data driven and has opened the doors for underrepresented students to take advantage of advanced, honors, and dual enrollment course opportunities. In her first year at Carver she has quadrupled the number of students enrolled in high school courses and tripled the number of students in state tested accelerated courses.


Ms. Ramsey’s belief that all students can succeed when given the opportunity is at the core of her educational philosophy, “My commitment is evident in consistent improved student performance and growth, increased access to accelerated coursework by underrepresented students, and cultivation of programs to encourage families to trust and invest in their community schools.”


The winner will be named during the Florida Commissioner of Education’s Summit for Principals on February 9 in Orlando.
