Charter schools may be rescheduling or modifying their graduation plans; information will be shared with their families directly as soon as details are confirmed.
 
We know that having to postpone the May graduation ceremonies is disappointing and the reschedule for August may be a challenge for some. We are so proud of each graduating senior for their perseverance in these unusual circumstances and are committed to recognizing their achievements. We hope that every graduate and their family will be able to attend in August. Schools will be sending out additional information and details to all graduates and their families.
2020 VIRTUAL SUMMER LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES
In Jeffco, our summer school options are varied and structured to meet different needs; some are academic, while others are enrichment-based. If you are interested in exploring options, talk with a principal, secretary, counselor, or teacher at your school to find out if they will have any summer programming there or nearby. Some of our elementary schools offer summer school for students who attend that school. For students in high school who need credit recovery, there are three regional options. Note: due to the Covid-19 outbreak, all summer school opportunities will be virtual this summer. See flyer or website for more details on high school credit recovery.
DISTRICT IN-PERSON SUMMER PROGRAMS/GATHERINGS PROHIBITED
Until August 1
In-person Jeffco Public Schools-based organized activities (or supports for these activities such as practice) which create group congregations are prohibited until August 1. Non-Jeffco Public Schools groups may be allowed after July 1, depending on changes to public health directives that would allow for those activities. As more information about the lifting of stay-at-home orders becomes known, we may update this information.
NEW: STUDENT INFORMATION WEBPAGE
Check out our new webpage dedicated to informing students about remote learning, health/wellness resources, and other topics to support them through this time. Feel free to share this link with your child(ren), so they feel informed and up-to-date moving forward. Student information will be continuously updated and added.
