Jefferson Elementary: More clear speaking concerning small schools

Community input and ideas from the meeting at Thomas Jefferson Elementary:

  • Add more services to the community rather than remove school services.
  • Our students need music and art or they leave for other options.
  • Add a home school support program.
  • Increase preschool capacity.
  • Increase district services to hospital bound children.
  • Relationships across generations are a part of the value of small schools
  • The value of parent involvement and community support needs to be in the matrix.
  • Consider reducing split grades by enrolling just resident students.
  • This neighborhood has been promised a junior high for 40 years.
  • Annual discussions about closing small schools lowers enrollment
  • Many parents have serious concerns about Kit Carson Junior High.
  • Teachers find split grade teaching a recipe for burnout.
