• Welcome to the 2019 – 2020 school year! My name is Shawn Platts and I am the proud Principal of Stonewall Jackson Elementary, home of the Roadrunners!  As the principal of Stonewall Jackson Elementary I am committed to making a positive impact in the lives of all of our students.  During my first year as principal, we were able to successfully move the academic needle and earned a School Grade of C, increasing 44 points!  We will continue to move the academic needle during this school year by setting high academic expectations for all students.  This will be accomplished by providing support systems that promote school culture, set high academic expectations for teacher by providing professional development focusing on best practices around mastery of Florida State Standards, increasing academic rigor for all students and engaging all stakeholders.

    All of our classrooms will be academically challenging, engaging each student by differentiating instruction to meet individual their individual needs.  Administration, teachers, support staff and parents all have an important role in the process of encouraging our students to become active learners.  Our goal is to provide expanded opportunities for our students to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to productive citizens in a vastly evolving society.

    We have an open door policy here at Stonewall Jackson Elementary.  We will always make ourselves available to speak with all stakeholders.  Please feel free to contact me directly at plattss@duvalschools.org or by phone at (904) 573 – 1020. 

    Sincerely,

    Principal Platts
