What school will look like in the Fall

Kelly Coker is an accomplished educator with the knowledge and desire to make our schools better for children! After graduating from Jacksonville University, Kelly began as a young middle school teacher with the Duval County Public Schools. Over the next 27 years, she went on to serve as a Principal, Region Superintendent, and, most recently, Assistant Superintendent. 

 

During her career, she expanded school choice options for all children, oversaw a 29 million-dollar budget, and led multiple divisions across the school district. Working with parents, local business leaders, and school principals, she was able to establish new workforce development programs, expand dual enrollment options, and achieve record high district graduation rates. 

 

Kelly is a 4th generation Jacksonville native who has lived in School Board District 1 her entire life. She and her husband of 27 years continue to live in the neighborhood where she grew up. They are the proud parents of a daughter who recently graduated from Duval County Public Schools and now attends the University of Virginia.
