Who was Jackson Davis?

Henry Jackson  Davis served as superintendent of Henrico County Public Schools from 1905-1909. Davis worked to ensure equal access to high quality schools in Henrico County for all students, especially African American students. During his time in Henrico County he worked alongside Virginia Randolph as part of the Jeanes Foundation, formed to improve the educational opportunities of African Americans living in rural areas. Teachers associated with the foundation worked to raise funds for improved school facilities and equipment. After leaving Henrico County, Davis went on to support higher education nationwide, continuing his focus on supporting rural schools. Jackson Davis was also an integral part of the planning and early stages of the United Negro College Fund, which continues to support scholarships for students to attend historically black colleges and universities. We are proud of our namesake, and we hope you will take a few minutes to read more about Jackson Davis:

We are a Common Sense Media School!

Jackson Davis has just been approved as a Common Sense School, an honor that recognizes our efforts in teaching digital citizenship to young people and engaging the entire school community in this important discussion. The recognition acknowledges our school’s commitment to helping students build skills that are essential for their well-being today—and for the opportunities they’ll have tomorrow.

This honor is provided by Common Sense Education, part of a national nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of kids and families by providing the trustworthy information, education, and independent voice they need to thrive in a world of media and technology.

We are one of the more than 65,000 schools across the country that use Common Sense Education’s groundbreaking education resources. As a result, our students are better equipped to navigate the digital world and use devices for learning. We hope you will encourage other schools in our district to take advantage of them. If 75% of schools in the district become Common Sense Schools, we can earn recognition as a Common Sense District.
