Jermaine Brown, who serves as assistant principal and director of student services for Forrest County Schools, has been named the new director of student services for Biloxi Public Schools.
The Biloxi School Board approved his hiring on Tuesday night, and Brown will begin work Jan. 31.
“Mr. Brown has worked at the district administrative level for a number years dealing with issues related to student disciplinary matters,” said Dr. Paul A. Tisdale, superintendent of Biloxi Public Schools. “I was impressed with Mr. Brown when I met him several years ago, and he’s had those career experiences that make him a good fit with our administrative team.”
Brown, 37, replaces Dr. David Spinks, who is leaving this month to become executive director of the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Gulf Coast
Brown has served in Forrest County Schools for two years, and was director of athletics and student services at Meridian Public School District for four years.
He graduated from Hattiesburg High School in 1991 and earned a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration from Jackson State, and two degrees from the University of Southern Mississippi, a Master of Science in Sport Administration and Specialist in Education Administration.
As director of student services, Brown will be responsible for overseeing the school resource officers, alternative school, student discipline hearings, issues related to student guardianship and residency, tuition, and the district’s in-school suspension program.
