Dear Jeffco Stakeholders, Jeffco Public Schools wants your input as we develop the 2014-15 budget. Members of the Jefferson County Board of Education have made community engagement a top priority; gathering this information will be valuable as the board moves forward in the budget development process. The board sets specific goals called Ends Policies which direct the work of the superintendent and district. Ends Policies are an essential component of the board's governance structure. Jeffco's 2014-15 budget will be developed to support the goals of these Ends Policies.
The Board of Education Goals
Every student will be taught by an effective teacher in a school led by an effective principal so that they are prepared for continuous learning and the world of work in the changing environment of the 21st century.
