OUR VISIONProvide a World-Class education for all students.
MEET THE NEEDS OF THE WHOLE CHILD
A whole-child approach, which ensures that each student is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged, sets the standard for comprehensive, sustainable school improvement and long-term student success.
ENSURE THAT EVERY STUDENT IS CHALLENGED AND ENGAGED
Each of the strategies related to this goal enables Central Community School System students to be prepared to function effectively in the world around them now and in the future, and develop the skills necessary to actualize their potential and achieve success.
RECRUIT, RETAIN AND DEVELOP HIGH-QUALITY STAFF
MAINTAIN FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY OF TAXPAYER DOLLARS
ENHANCE LOCAL COMMUNICATION AND COLLABORATION
The “Age of Collaboration” has been officially declared because it is understood that connecting with anyone, from anywhere, at the right time, with the right information differentiates successful organizations from less successful ones. Collaboration is the perfect approach to take advantage of the wealth of information and expertise within the Central Community School System. Making collaborative opportunities among the district’s various constituents easy and approachable means that the whole community can contribute to every student’s success and create a common legacy.
Dr. Jason Fountain, who has been an educator in the Central Community School System since 2009, has spent over twenty years impacting the lives of students.
Fountain started his teaching career at Bay Minette Middle School in Bay Minette, Alabama, as a 7th grade math teacher in 1995. He continued in that position until 2002 when he made a transition to working with student-athletes at the collegiate level. After a brief stint as a graduate assistant at his alma mater, Troy University, Fountain began work as an academic advisor for student-athletes at Mississippi State University in December 2002. A year later, Fountain began working at Florida State University as the academic advisor for football, soccer, and softball. In 2006, Fountain moved to Baton Rouge to work at Louisiana State University as the academic advisor for football student-athletes, where he coordinated academic services for the 2007 National Championship football team. He continued in this capacity through the end of 2008.
In January 2009, Fountain began serving as assistant principal at Tanglewood Elementary School. He remained in that position until July 2012 when he was named co-principal at Central Middle School. Beginning in 2013, Fountain served as the sole principal for the next three years. During this time, Central Middle School earned and maintained an “A” rating as determined by the Louisiana Department of Education.
In July 2016, Fountain moved to the Central Office as Director of Secondary Curriculum and Instruction. During this time, the District revamped its Discipline Center, rebranded and relaunched the Virtual Academy, and implemented the Eureka math curriculum in grades k-8.
Fountain began serving as the second Superintendent of the Central Community School System in January 2018.
Fountain grew up in a small town in south Alabama (East Brewton). He earned a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics from Troy University, a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics Education from Athens State University, a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from the University of South Alabama, and an Educational Doctorate from the University of Louisiana-Lafayette. Fountain is married to the former Aimie Chapman from Central, and the couple has two children, Ainsley and Jase.
