Superintendent Dan McMinimee's Statement Regarding Student Protests
I respect the right of our students to express their opinions in a peaceful manner. However, I do prefer that our students stay in class and in their buildings. My leadership team and I have visited several high schools in the past few days, meeting with large and small groups of students, answering their questions and listening to their legitimate concerns. Our most important priority is to keep our children safe during these demonstrations. It’s also important that our community understand that no decisions have been made regarding the curriculum committee.
District Launches Enrollment & Choice Survey
The district has launched the Jeffco School Enrollment & Choice Survey, a parent survey, to help identify the district’s highest priority enrollment and choice challenges to address over the next 12 to 18 months. The survey asks parents about their experiences around enrollment, satisfaction with current curricular and extra-curricular offerings in Jeffco, desired curricular and extra-curricular offerings, and preferences for additional school choices (STEM, IB, school of arts, for example).
Parents can access the survey with their Jeffco Connect login and password at: https://soars.jeffco.k12.co.us/survey/Login.aspx
The survey will close on Sunday, Oct. 5. The survey takes approximately seven minutes per level (preschool, elementary, middle and high). Parents with children in more than one level, should add an additional seven minutes to the completion time. Read more.
Fletcher Miller - Jeffco's Only School Dedicated to the "Differently-abled"
Natasha Ruybal watched with pride as her son Jayden made another ride around the track on his adaptive bike at Jeffco Stadium while a mix of pop tunes and oldies blared from speakers overhead. Jayden, a third grader at Fletcher Miller School, was among about 95 Fletcher Miller students who took part in the school's annual Bike Day. Fletcher Miller, located next-door to the stadium off 6th & Kipling, is the only school in Jefferson County dedicated to serving students with multiple disabilities who can't be accommodated in other schools.

Engage Jeffco Schools
The district is always looking for ways to better connect with the people who have an interest in our schools. We also understand that attending a meeting to make your voice heard is not always possible. We searched for another way to connect with our community and we think we have found it. We offer an online discussion forum Engage Jeffco Schools.
