My Learning Plan

Jefferson County Schools is in the process of replacing My Learning Plan with Performance Matters. A plan is in place to assist employees during the transition. Please review the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) below

Q: Where are the My Learning Plan links on the Jefferson County Webpage?
A: My Learning Plan is no longer being used.  As Superintendent Gibson shared in the early 2018 school year, we transitioned to a new Learning Management System (LMS) called Performance Matters in 2019, which is part of Jefferson County’s TalentEd platform.  

Q: How do I enter a class I need to have conducted in 2019?
A: For now, Mrs. Penny Shiley is handling all enrollments for new courses during the month of January 2019.  However, teachers and Administrators will be able to login and create that activity on their own by February 2019.  In the meantime, Mrs. Shiley can be reached at

Q: How do I get trained on how to use the new Performance Matters program?
A: Training will be made available on Friday, February 15, 2018 at various times throughout the staff development day.  In addition, a video and a how-to-guide will be available on our website for employees to access.  

Q: How do I log into Performance Matters?
A:  If you are a regular full-time employee, you will use your current Jefferson County Schools email and password for your login credentials.  If you are a substitute and use a personal email that we have on file, use that and your password for that to login.  

Q: I have credit(s) missing in my transcript section of Performance Matters, where is it?
A: If you did not complete and finalize any outstanding courses you were enrolled in per the numerous emails sent by Mrs. Shiley during the Fall of this school year, that data is no longer available and did no transfer to the new system.  

Q: Will I be penalized, for not having historical records of my previous years of staff development? 
A: No, you will not be penalized and your past transcript does not impact what is required for the current school year.  

Q: Are we still required to have 18 hours of staff development per year in Jefferson County Schools?
A: Yes and you will have a greater selection of courses from which to choose with the new system. 
Q: Who do I contact if I just have general questions?
A: You may contact the Human Resources department at 304-728-9253.
