Dear Van Buren R-1 School District Community,

It is with great pleasure and excitement that I extend a warm welcome to all of you as the Superintendent of the Van Buren R-1 School District. My name is Amy Jackson, and I am incredibly honored to serve in this capacity, bringing with me a deep connection to this district and a genuine dedication to our community.

As a graduate of Van Buren High School myself, I understand the profound impact that our district can have on the lives of its students. This community holds a special place in my heart, as many generations of my family have not only lived in this area but have also graduated from VBHS, including my great-grandmother, Mariam McSpadden, who was in the very first graduating class here in 1922. 

As I continue in this role as your Superintendent, I want to assure you that my commitment to the Van Buren R-1 School District is unwavering. Together with our talented and passionate team of educators, administrators, staff, and parents, we will continue to provide a safe, nurturing, and high-quality learning environment for our students.

Your support and involvement in the education of our students are crucial, and I encourage you to actively participate in our various initiatives, attend school events, and engage in meaningful discussions that shape the future of our district.

I am truly excited about the opportunity to continue to work collaboratively with each and every one of you as we continue to elevate the Van Buren R-1 School District to new heights of excellence. Together, we will create an environment where our students can thrive, grow, and reach their full potential.

If you have any questions, suggestions, or ideas, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. I look forward to our journey together and the remarkable achievements we will accomplish as a united educational community.

With warm regards,

Amy Jackson


Van Buren R-1 School District
