About Jeffco Schools Foundation
VISION: all Jeffco students have a valuable and meaningful learning experience which prepares and inspires them for a successful future.
Mission: Connect the community to jeffco classroom needs, and bring resources and partnerships to bridge gaps facing the district, schools, teachers and students.
we do this by: providing recognition to district staff and students, partnering with district staff, including principals, to explore innovative projects and programs, and providing infrastructure and guidance to support foundation and school fundraising efforts.
Our Focus areas: School Readiness, learning, conditions to learn
we believe: jeffco students must demonstrate proficiency and be exposed to a variety of problem based, work Based, and project based learning.
readiness affects students' ability to enter a jeffco school prepared to succeed. the environment in which they learn is equally as important and students cannot learn if basic needs are unmet.
learning cannot take place without experienced professional educators. This all in combination results in creating pathways for our students upon graduation.
The Foundation's role is to enhance the student experience.
jeffco schools foundation continues to evolve as the needs of jeffco public schools change and as the world beyond jeffco changes, And jeffco students are now expected to have a variety of skill sets.
jeffco schools foundation is proud to invest in the endeavors listed above, which we believe offer a chance for jeffco students to thrive.
