Stakeholder Input Needed
These plans help school systems coordinate their federal programs so the needs of the students can be met.
The goals for federal programs are:
Improve student achievement
Provide professional development and growth opportunities
Improve parent involvement in their children's education
If you would like to make suggestions and review the plans, we welcome you to attend our upcoming meeting:
May 26th at 6:00 p.m. or May 27th at 8:00 a.m. at the Jackson County Central Office.
The BOE discussed the potential of a Tiered Transportation plan which would impact start and end times for students, as well as, transportation services configuration. In an effort to improve our transportation services, several plans were considered to: reduce student route times, eliminate elementary students from riding with middle and high school students, to create a consistent morning and afternoon driver for all students and to reduce the conflict between afternoon extra-curricular events and valuable instructional time. After several community meetings, stakeholder feedback and feasibility studies, the BOE accepted the superintendent's recommendation to keep existing transportation service model with a few changes for improvement:
- School Start and End TimesMorning Transportation Service will remain the same with all students being picked up at the same time in the mornings and middle and high school students utilizing express routes.
- Elementary 7:45 AM-2:20 PM
- Middle 8:00 AM-3:20 PM
- High 8:00 AM-3:10 PM
- Afternoon routes will deliver elementary students between 2:30 and 3:30PM; middle and high school routes will be combined and deliver students between 3:30 and 4:45PM.
