Strategic Plan

Jeffco Thrives Logo

Introducing Jeffco Thrives 2025, the Strategic Plan for Jeffco Public Schools that is built on an opportunity to move our district from good to great to extraordinary.


Our vision is for Jeffco Public Schools to be a thriving district where all students achieve their biggest dreams.


Our mission is to provide a world-class education that prepares all Jeffco students for bright and successful futures as local and global citizens.


Focus on Students: In Jeffco, we make decisions and measure outcomes based on how well we serve our students. We exist to help students succeed and act with intensity to give our students the education they need and deserve, today.

Excellence: In Jeffco, we aspire to be a world-class school district which requires us to inspire one another to make an impact, focus on solutions, maximize our partnerships, and hold ourselves accountable for successful outcomes for all students.

Equity: In Jeffco, not all students, staff, and families are starting from the same place nor do they need the same things to reach their fullest potential. We view individual differences as assets to be leveraged as we help all students thrive.

Integrity: In Jeffco, acting with integrity creates honesty, trust, responsibility, and a spirit of transparency. It is a constant commitment to do the right thing for our students, staff, families, and community.

Belonging: In Jeffco, we cultivate environments where all students, staff, families, and members of our community are safe, accepted, respected, included, encouraged by others, and feel that their voices and perspectives are valued.

The Jeffco Thrives 2025 framework currently under review by our community has four priority areas and six guiding focuses. The Framework should be viewed through the lens of alignment to the District vision, mission, and values statements, which have been revised by our Board of Education.

The four priority areas are:

  • Our Learners: Our Future
  • Our People: Our Strength
  • Our Operations: Our Foundation
  • Our Communities: Our Legacy

The two guiding focuses for Our Learners: Our Future are a culture of instructional excellence and extraordinary student experiences.

The guiding focus for Our People: Our Strength is a collaborative, value-driven team culture.

Our Operations: Our Foundation has two guiding focuses―physical environments and operational excellence and long-term sustainability.

And, in Our Communities: Our Legacy our guiding focus is strong partnerships with the community.

Jeffco Thrives Alliance Banner

The Jeffco Thrives 2025 Alliance is a diverse group of members who volunteered their time in order to participate in this collaborative working group over the last two months in four, three-hour sessions. The Alliance consisted of teachers, BoE members, community partners, government agency employees, business owners, parents, guardians and more.

The Alliance worked with members of our leadership team to review the drafted segments of the new strategic plan. They provided valuable and critical input which will guide our next steps. We are grateful for their commitment to this important work on behalf of our students and school communities. We are #BetterTogether as a direct result of the Alliance and we will continue to engage community stakeholders as we implement and track progress of our strategic plan.
