Join Jefferson County Schools for an important conversation about equity and closing achievement gaps among students. Like school systems across the country, Jefferson County Schools has a responsibility to work toward the success and well-being of all students. It is a responsibility we take seriously and a guidepost for all that we do. While the work has resulted in progress, long-standing achievement gaps between subgroups of students remain. We ask that you work with us to continue developing innovative programs designed to meet students where they are and find equitable solutions to support student success. Your partnership is critical as we move forward. Please join us in meeting the challenges of supporting success for every JCS student.
