Jefferson Township Public School District (27-2380)

Jefferson Township Public School District

The Jefferson Township Public School District is committed to providing a quality education to all of our students. Our schools promote the highest standards of academic excellence, as well as the highest social and ethical expectations within our learning community. Our district’s comprehensive K-12 curriculum is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills they will require to be life-long learners, productive workers, and responsible and contributing citizens.

There are many stakeholders, including teachers, support staff, administrators, the Board of Education, parent groups, and the community, whose dedication and support enriches the curricular and co-curricular experiences for our students.

The district has incorporated the Common Core Standards (CCS) in all curricular areas. Instructional materials matching the requirements of the CCS have been purchased for most subject areas. Professional development to assist teachers in the instructional transition is on-going.

Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) exist in every school. Within the PLCs, teachers work together to improve instructional practices. The district continues to focus on tools for student assessment. These assessments enable teachers and students to identify strengths and areas needing additional work. Unit and semester assessments are designed to prepare students for the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) administration in the 2016-2017 school year.

Information contained in the individual School Report Card provides a snapshot of each of our schools. Statistical, demographic, programmatic, and local information is included. Each School Report Card also contains a narrative prepared by the building principal, which highlights exemplary projects and accomplishments. If you have questions about any of the information contained in the report cards, please feel free to contact my office with questions about the district and the building principal with questions about individual schools.
