Gear Up Meeting

Several administrators from JCPS attended a partnership meeting with Berea College GEAR-UP Program at Somerset today.  The group reviewed the Walkthrough Reports for the JCMS and the JCHS.  The meeting will help everyone gain a better understanding of standards implementation and rigorous instruction, including how they contribute to college readiness within GEAR-UP schools and districts.  The meeting will also help administrators identify trends, needs and leadership actions to strengthen instruction and school/district culture.

Non-Traditional Instructional Day Parent Survey

The Non-Traditional Instructional Day will allow our district to conduct school through virtual or other non-traditional means on days that we would normally have to cancel school (for weather, flooding, sickness, etc.)  There are currently 13 districts in Kentucky using the Non-Traditional Instructional Day.  The district is in the process of gathering input from various stakeholders to determine if the Non-Instructional Day would be an option for Jackson County for the 15-16 School Year.  The Non-Traditional Instructional Day will allow our students to continue with activities going on in the classroom and help minimize learning loss from being out of school for long periods of time.
