Drinking Water in the Jackson County Schools is Safe.

Drinking water sources in Jackson County Schools were recently tesed for lead in accordance to T.C.A. 49-2-133. The reuslts provided by a third-party water testing laboratory indicate that drinking water and water used for cooking, washing dishes or food items all exceed safety requirements.
 
The Jackson County Board of Education, in collabortation with the Tennessee State Board Association, will adopt a policy so that drinking water sources will be tested periodically to ensure that everyone in our schools continue to have safe drinking water.
