Jefferson City Schools Consider Changes
JEFFERSON CITY- Many parents and teachers listened in as administators presented plans that could change the way that students attend high school.
Three options were presented to those in attendance at Thursday's meeting at Jefferson City High School. All of them would involve dividing up the curriculum into specialized areas called academies. Options A and B would involve utilizing existing buildings to teach the students. Option C calls for building a second high school and also dividing it up into academies.
"I think the ability to communicate, collaborate, work with people to solve problems and to give people the opportunity to use their creative side is going to put more tools in their tool belt that will mke them successful," said teacher Ben Medurm.
The district will hold three more public meetings this month on the topic; April 12, 19 and 21.
