Jeffco welcomes Superintendent Jason Glass

A meet and greet was held June 8

Posted

Parents, teachers, local government, and members of the community gathered June 8 at Lakewood High School to greet Jefferson County Schools’ new superintendent Dr. Jason Glass.

“I was so grateful to be in a room with such a positive feeling,” said parent and Golden resident Kelly Johnson, who said she attended the event because after listening to Glass speak at the Board of Education meeting when he was voted in, she wanted to hear more from him.

“Jeffco is a challenging place, and we have to come together again in the best interests of students,” Johnson said. “I think (Glass) is capable of knitting us tother to work for the best of the kids.”

For Glass, the welcome reception was a way to connect with the community before officially taking over the position on July 1.

“Right off the bat I wanted to make a connection with the community,” Glass said, while taking a break from talking one-on-one with community members. “Getting to come here and meet so many people from Jeffco that are excited about the schools and welcoming to us has just been tremendous.”

Jeffco Board of Education member Amanda Stevens said having a meet and greet for Jeffco’s new leader is extremely important in her eyes.

“These are community members, parents like myself and people who are elected officials in our cities — who make decisions that impact our families and kids,” Stevens said. “So, I’m really excited for (Glass) to have a chance to meet as many people as possible, even before his day-one on July 1. Mostly because I want him to get excited about the community he’s working with and I want the community to get excited about him.”

Glass said that the community members he has met are excited about where the schools are headed and wish Jeffco to be successful.

“That’s a great starting point for us,” Glass said. “I want to keep building relationships, connections and collaborations so that when it comes time for us to work on really hard things, we have those established relationships to build on.”
