How will middle schools pay for the technology, materials, textbooks, etc. needed for the newly-added 6th grade students?
A mix of solutions may be used to fund the needs of the transition, and the finance staff will work closely with school principals to do so. Our goal, as with any other project, is to fund the needs that arise with the resources available to the district.

How does this change impact Title 1 funds?
The Title 1 grants team is evaluating the changes based on the current schedule to determine the impacts. That analysis has not yet been completed.

How will elementary schools with low enrollments be affected?
Budget allocations are based on student enrollment. Principals can be assured that the district leadership is committed to the success of this transition and will prioritize and attend to the needs of each school.

Per the letter Dr. Glass sent to all students, families, staff and communities on August 25, 2017, “Barring any drastic, unforeseen changes in school funding or our current situation, I feel we can take time to carefully consider the issue [low enrollment]. Therefore, I am hereby notifying the Jefffco community that my administration will make no recommendations on closing any neighborhood schools until the 2019-20 school year, at the earliest.”

“Further, when and if we come to the place where we must seriously consider closing a school, this decision should be reached in partnership with the affected community. Toward that end, we are re-evaluating our processes and practices relating to school closure recommendations and communications and will work with a cross-section of our community to develop a thoughtful and respectful approach to school closures.”
