Staffing shortages are impacting school systems across the country. For Jefferson County Schools (JCS), the shortages have significantly affected our staff time to complete critical behind-the-scenes work that goes into sustaining excellence in teaching and learning. Beginning October 15th, Jefferson County Schools will dismiss students 1/2 day every Friday. Staff will spend 3 hours completing all non-student supervision work (planning, SAT/IEP meetings, creating instructional materials, deep cleaning, etc). A full explanation of the factors leading to this change and expectations for staff in using this time can be found in the “Sustaining Excellence Plan” on the JCS website https://5il.co/101uz

A popular snack food helped students at Blue Ridge Elementary School learn all about pollination thanks to a visit from Amanda Johnson with the WVU Extension Service. Johnson showed Danielle Chinnock’s second-grade students how bees help flowers grow. “The students pretended to be bees, drinking nectar (water) and then taking pollen (Cheeto dust) to paper flowers,” Chinnock said. The WVU Extension Service’s youth education programs promote responsibility, teamwork and overall youth development while cultivating a promising future.
