JEFFERSON - Just one year after accepting the position, Jackson County School Superintendent Dr. John Green has announced his resignation according to a report in the Jackson Herald Today.

Previous to that Green served in Georgia as Assistant Superintendent for Gwinnett County Schools, principal at North Gwinnett High School, Associate Principal of Brookwood High, Assistant Principal of Berkmar High, and teacher and coach at Meadowcreek High.
