Jeff Co. School Supt. Outlines Plan

Jefferson County Public School Superintendent Donna Hargens announced a 90-day plan at her first school board meeting on Monday. The plan outlines her strategic priorities and includes performance checks and both short and long-term goals.

The plan helps regulate the district’s progress as it attempts to improve student performance and communication with the community, said Hargens. The plan can be followed online, with results documented as goals are met.

“And we will update it regularly and you will be able to see if these are complete, or in progress, or still to be started,” Hargens said. “And we intend to do reports to the board, because I think it’s really important that we start to work and start to work together and show the community what we’re accomplishing.”

The agenda combines the transition plan prepared for Hargens by the school board and the work that Hargens will already be expected to accomplish.
