Strategic Planning Meeting

Jefferson County School has begun preparation on a five-year strategic plan. Students, parents, teachers, and community members are a very important part of this plan. Your input, ideas, visionary thinking and creative solutions are needed during the next months as we collaborated to improve teaching and learning in Jefferson County. 

There is a meeting on October 6 from 6 PM to 8 PM in the Shades Valley High School auditorium for our community to meet with Dr. Pouncey and the Strategic Planning committee to share your thoughts, ideas, and to contribute to the district’s strategic plan to assist in making the Shades Valley Feeder zone and JCIB all it can be. 

This meeting is for parents, teachers, and community stakeholders such as business and industry partners. We all must work together to assist our students to be successful and contributing members of the Irondale community and beyond. Please make plans to attend.
