Jefferson Master Planning
PPS will soon start the master planning process for the modernization of historic Jefferson High School Middle College for Advanced Studies. Master planning is the first step in determining the shape of the new school. PPS will seek input from the Jefferson community about the design and is looking for volunteers to join the Jefferson Master Planning Committee.
The Jefferson Master Planning Committee (MPC)
The Jefferson Master Planning Committee (MPC) is a group of school and community stakeholder representatives who will work together to help provide feedback for the Jefferson master plan. MPC members synthesize community-wide input and share the evolving details of the project with others in the community. The Committee will include parents, teachers, students, alumni, PPS staff and partners, community representatives and a school board member. While MPC members do not make decisions, their input is crucial in creating a design that the entire Jefferson community will be proud of.

Jefferson Modernization Project History - Conceptual Master Planning 2019
In late 2019, after a series of public meetings over a four-month period, a Jefferson High School Conceptual Master Plan was completed as part of the planning effort for the 2020 Bond. The work was done through a Conceptual Master Planning Committee (CMPC), a group of school and community stakeholder representatives who worked together to help provide feedback for the Conceptual Jefferson master plan. This conceptual plan will be used as the starting point for the new Jefferson Modernization Master Plan, but the new Master Planning Committee (MPC) will not be restricted by those plans. To learn more, please visit the Jefferson Conceptual Master Planning webpage.
