District Curriculum and School Improvement Initiatives
The Curriculum and Instruction pages contain information about our District's educational program. There are materials posted and links provided that support the Jefferson Area Local Schools' school improvement initiatives.
The files in the Curriculum and Instruction Links Box to the right of this page contain materials and links related to teaching and learning. The materials are primarily directed toward educators but may also be of interest to parents, community members and students.
Academic Content Standards Revision Resources
Ohio has adopted clearly defined statements and/or illustrations of what all students, teachers, schools and districts are expected to know and be able to do in every content area.
Title I is a Federally funded program designed to give extra help to students who are at risk of failing to meet State and National standards in the areas of Reading, Math, and Language Arts. Our Title I program operates as a whole school model in both elementary buildings.
Ohio Improvement Process
The Ohio improvement Process embraces the concept that effective schools are engaged in a long-term process of improvement of teaching and learning that is demonstrated by a pattern of continuous improvement of learning for every child. The continuous improvement cycle includes determination of prioritized needs, planning for focused improvement, implementation of the plan, and monitoring and evaluation of the results.
