Jeffco Thrives 2025 Strategic Plan

Jeffco Thrives 2025 is the Strategic Plan for Jeffco Public Schools. Built on an opportunity to move our district from good to great to extraordinary, Jeffco Thrives is focused on four priorities:

  • Our Learners. Our Future.
  • Our People. Our Strength.
  • Our Operations. Our Foundation.
  • Our Community. Our Legacy.

Mission, Vision and Values


Provide a world-class education that prepares all Jeffco students for bright and successful futures as local and global citizens.


Be a thriving district where all students achieve their biggest dreams.


Belonging: In Jeffco, we cultivate environments where all students, staff, families, and members of our community are safe, accepted, respected, included, encouraged by others, and feel that their voices and perspectives are valued.

Equity: In Jeffco, not all students, staff and families are starting from the same place nor do they need the same things to reach their fullest potential. We view individual differences as assets to be leveraged as we help all students thrive.

Excellence: In Jeffco, we aspire to be a world-class school district which requires us to inspire one another to make an impact, focus on solutions, maximize our partnerships, and hold ourselves accountable for successful outcomes for all students.

Focus on Students: In Jeffco, we make decisions and measure outcomes based on how well we serve our students. We exist to help students succeed and act with intensity to give our students the education they need and deserve, today.

Integrity: In Jeffco, acting with integrity creates honesty, trust, responsibility, and a spirit of transparency. It is a constant commitment to do the right thing for our students, staff, families, and community.


This is the work Jeffco will do from now until the end of the 2025-26 school year.

Priority 1: Our Learners. Our Future

Goal 1: All Jeffco students experience a culture of instructional excellence.

Goal 2: All Jeffco students have extraordinary student experiences that recognize their strengths, challenge them to improve, and support them to succeed.

Priority 2: Our People. Our Strength.

Goal 1: A collaborative, inclusive team culture with high expectations for staff and student performance contributes to instructional excellence and extraordinary student experiences.

Priority 3: Our Operations. Our Foundation.

Goal 1: Physical environments and operational services in Jeffco contribute to instructional excellence and extraordinary student experiences.

Jeffco Thrives 2025 framework has four priority areas and six guiding focuses. The framework should be viewed through the lens of alignment to the district vision, mission and values statements, which have been revised by our Board of Education.
