District and School Improvement & Required Planning

This page provides our community access to the Jefferson Area Local School District's Improvement Plan.

In addition, The State of Ohio and the Federal Government has required that school districts receiving funding from the American Rescue Plan (ARP) engage in additional planning. These plans are also located here for review by the public.

Learning Recovery & Extended Learning Plan March 31, 2021

NOTE: This plan was required by the State of Ohio as part of the ESSER II Funding Process.

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.

This 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.
