Dave Rogers, Interim Principal


  • Dear Jefferson High School community,

    Welcome to the 2015-16 school year!  Thank you for your partnership in seeking a new principal for Jefferson High School.  We have had more than 450 responses to our online survey and want to update you on this process.  The interview team spent a significant amount of time reviewing your survey responses, scoring applicant data portfolios, interviewing candidates and checking references. Ultimately, the team determined that to meet the high expectations of our community, we need to expand this search.  

    While we hoped to have a principal announced prior to the start of the school year, we know meeting the high expectations that we share for this position must be our first priority.   Therefore, next week a new broader search will launch through national educational publications.  Dave Rogers will continue as the interim principal through the opening of school to accommodate this broader search.

    In conjunction with the outstanding administrative team, faculty and service personnel I am confident that the students will enjoy the same high quality educational experience that is the hallmark of Jefferson High School.   Thank you for your time and support of Jefferson County Schools.  

    Bondy Shay Gibson, Ed.D.

    Abigail Snyder and Joe Stimmel have advanced to the Congressional Art Awards Semi-finals representing WV’s 2nd District.   We are extremely proud of them! Only one student from each of the three WV districts is selected each year. The winner’s  art will be on display at the nation’s Capital for a year and he, or she, will be invited to Washington D.C. for a reception.  In addition, Jefferson had two winners in the Martinsburg Journal Design-An-Ad competition, Emma Damm and Sarah Miscus.   Emma Damm earned 1st place honors and Sarah Miscus took 2nd place in their respective age groups. Finally, Jefferson had several students  showcase their work in the County Art Show at the Charles Town Fire Hall Gallery.
