David Luther is the assistant superintendent with the district. He says the school will offer seven different academies – something he refers to as “seven schools within a school.” These will align with a student’s possible career path, but are also fairly broad in nature.
Leaders in the Jefferson City Public School District have drawn up a statement of seven beliefs that they think will better define Jefferson City Public Schools and drive student success. David Luther is the Assistant Superintendent with the school district. He was also at the retreat last week where leaders worked on the list.
“The discussion was very good – it was pretty intense," Luther said.
Leaders began with about 20 statements. Luther says their goal was to boil down the ideas to eliminate redundancy.
