District sends mass mailing to explain high school plan
Sunday, December 23, 2012
This week, the Jefferson City School District sent out a mass mailing — titled the “2012 Update and Report” — to inform the public about the district’s concept for a new high school and help people understand the district’s approach to seven career-oriented academies.
“We created this report because we know there were a lot of questions people had,” said David Luther, assistant to the superintendent. “It’s common for districts to do this.”
A copy can be found online at www.newjchs.us.
The eight-page report includes a sketch of what the new campus east of Missouri 179 might look like and a graphic that shows what professions each of the seven career academies would include.
The brochure also lets readers know that the district has completed “two of three vital components” — including buying the 115-acre property and selling the current 609 Union St. campus — needed to complete a high school facility. The third component “is for the Board of Education to place an issue before voters and for the community to support the plan,” the report states.
