June 2, 2015: Important information for new students. Unfortunately, our PE and Spanish courses are now full. If you applied as a full time student, please finish the IOL and your counselor will have you select a different elective when you are scheduled. If you applied as a part time student and wanted to take a PE or Spanish course online, you will either need to select a different elective or let your counselor know that the Jeffco Virtual PE and Spanish classes are no longer an option.
June 2, 2015: As a school we are always working to better meet the needs of our students. New for the 15-16 school year we will be implementing MTSS (Multi-Tiered Systems of Support) Plans for all Full-Time students. These are individualized plans outlining student and parent expectations, interventions and support, and a timeline for reviewing the plans. They are based on current grades, attendance, plans (504, IEP, etc) and other evidence we have available to us. Some students may be required to attend events and orientations on campus, and some may be required to meet with staff virtually or on campus. Each plan will be just a little bit different as we strive to best meet the needs of your student and ensure their success at Jeffco Virtual. As a requirement of enrollment the student and parent will sign off on the MTSS plan before school starts each year. If these plans are not signed, a student's schedule could be withheld or enrollment denied. You will receive communication from your student's counselor when your MTSS plan is ready to be signed. Please ensure that you have updated your contact information in Jeffco Connect so communication can be timely and accurate.
