    Mary Stowell was recognized at the February 23, 2015 board meeting for her recent title as Teacher of the Year at C.W. Shipley Elementary. Ms. Stowell has enriched the lives of many students over the years. She has also left her mark on the school, having painted a mural in the front hall and stenciled both her classroom and the office. Ms. Stowell is even responsible for the art history unit that is offered at C.W. Shipley. After 14 years of service at C.W. Shipley, Ms. Stowell will retire this year. You will be missed Ms. Stowell, but your art will live on through the halls of C.W. Shipley!

  • On-Line Survey Seeks Community Input

    in Support of JCS Superintendent Search

    The search for the next superintendent of Jefferson County Schools is underway.

    As one of the initial steps in the process, the JCS Board of Education is asking the JCS community and the greater Jefferson County community to participate in an on-line survey sharing thoughts on the desired characteristics and skills you would like to see in the next Superintendent of Jefferson County Schools.

    As you respond to the survey, please remember that all characteristics listed are desirable.  The goal of the survey is to capture your perceptions about which characteristics are “most important” for Jefferson County Schools.  The survey will take approximately ten minutes to complete.
