District and School Improvement Planning

Jefferson Area Local Schools   

Learning Recovery & Extended Learning Plan  March 31, 2021

On February 9, 2021, Governor DeWine asked schools and districts to work with their communities and educational stakeholders to help students continue to advance academically and to make up for any learning that may have been lost or delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic and related disruptions.

Our plan  is aligned with our school district Improvement plan, the Ohio Strategic plan for education, the 2020-21 School Reopening plan, remote learning plan and PBIS initiatives in grades K-12.

The JALSD Advantage:

The Jefferson Area Local Schools has an advantage regarding schooling during the pandemic. Our district returned to school full-time everyday beginning on August 27th and remained in session throughout the 2020-21 school year. Except for five school days following the Thanksgiving and Christmas Break, our students had the opportunity to attend in-person schooling following the established school calendar. We had 1255 student choose this option. In -person learners benefitted from smaller than usual class sizes.

Our one-to one student Chromebook ratio in grade K-12 allowed students during the extended vacations or if they were quarantined to continue learning from home.

In addition to our return to school option we offered families the option of having their children learn at home. We had 222 students K-6 and 198 students 7-12 choose this option. In grades K-6 students learning at home were supported by a teacher at each grade level with additional tutor support. The district invested in online curriculum to support the process.

Our Vision is to be a pre-K-12 school district that is recognized for its academic excellence and for actively serving and improving the Jefferson Area Local School District’s community.

School improvement in the Jefferson Area Local Schools is an ongoing effort to provide an effective education for our students while being responsive to our parents, community, and taxpayers. We seek to provide instruction in a caring, safe, and healthy learning environment, responsive to each student and in collaboration with families and the community.
