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 threat posted on social media against an unidentified school led to precautions at two schools in Jefferson County Thursday. Although this incident was investigated in Berkeley County, law enforcement could not initially determine whether the threat was local or if it targeted a specific school. In an abundance of caution, Jefferson High School modified the bus arrival pattern. Wildwood Middle School entered into a temporary modified lockout, limiting visitors and keeping students inside the building while maintaining a normal schedule. The lockout was lifted by noon Thursday. Jefferson County Schools (JCS) puts the safety of students and staff first and applauds local law enforcement and our administrators for quick action. As always, JCS takes any potential threat seriously. We are grateful to and fully support our partners in law enforcement in their efforts to determine the validity of these threats and what risk they might pose to children. We appreciate the continued patience and support of our families, students, and community as we work to keep our schools safe.
