School Responds To Girl’s Death

The Archbold Area School District moved quickly to provide counseling to students after the death of 15- year-old Jazzmine M. Jones- Caldwell, Archbold.

“Anytime a school receives information about the death of someone who is of student age, we do our best to provide counseling,” David Deskins, Archbold Area School District superintendent, said Monday.

Jones-Caldwell died Sunday, March 4. Information from her death certificate, filed with the Fulton County Health Department, lists the cause of death as suicide.

Deskins said Jones- Caldwell had been a student at Archbold High School, but had withdrawn from the school district to continue her education through online, Internet-based instruction.

She was not a student in the Archbold school district at the time of her death, Deskins said.

Deskins said in addition to the school guidance staff, clergymen, including youth pastors, from throughout the area volunteer to talk with students who need to seek the services.

Deskins said the school district has made resources available to the Jones- Caldwell family, and will continue to do so.

He declined to discuss the incident further.
