The purpose of our handbooks is to serve as a useful guide in providing you with the rules, regulations, policies, programs, and services of Jefferson Area Local Schools. Students and parents are urged to read the handbook that applies to them (elementary or secondary) so they will be knowledgeable, thus avoiding misunderstandings. Jefferson Senior high and Junior high as well as Jefferson Elementary School and Rock Creek Elementary School students, regardless of age, are bound by the regulations of their handbook. The Jefferson Area Local Board of Education has authorized the administration to construct this publication that comprises the official regulations and procedures for the operation of the Elementary buildings. Jefferson Area Local Schools prides itself on being an equal opportunity school.
