Dear Demo Community;
It is with great pride and excitement that I welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year! Given the chance to lead “The School of Champions” is such an honor that I don't take lightly. On behalf of the Jefferson High School team, we want to say “Welcome back!”
As we begin this new school year, we will be sure to send communication regarding our updates:
Attendance Policy & Support
Academic Policy & Support
Drug & Alcohol Policy & Support
And a host of other topics as we begin the year
As a learning community, we will reinforce rigor, respect, and responsibility to your students. As a community of educators, we are driven by the individual success and growth of our students. Our staff takes great pride and honor in educating, inspiring, and motivating your student(s).
As the principal of Jefferson High, Middle College for Advanced Studies, I believe that it is my responsibility to maintain and to continue to build a supportive and collaborative spirit at our school. Together as a school community, we will build on the traditions of the past and meet the challenges of the future in innovative and exciting ways.
Again, I am excited to lead this community!!! Let's have a FANTASTIC YEAR!!!!!
Demos I Say!
Principal Drake Shelton
Today, we offered compromises that would both reward our educators and further our students’ success. We were able to raise our compensation offer substantially. We are not there yet, but we are committed to the hard work of finding common ground.
Today, we started the state-led mediation process with one priority: our children’s success. We offered compromises that would keep that vision at the heart of our work – and maintained our position on proposals that would negatively impact students.
