Attending the welcome reception for Jeffco schools' new superintendent, Dr. Jason Glass, I found myself in a room filled with community leaders, elected officials, parents, teachers, district staff and students - all who care deeply about Jeffco's future. Dr. Glass highlighted four essential elements to creating real educational change: raising up the teaching profession, anchoring student experiences against high expectations, profoundly changing the learning experiences of students, and coming together as a community to confront the damaging effects of student poverty as early and aggressively as we possibly can.
The room was quiet and attentive. And then he asked us all to "imagine what a community, united in love for its children, can accomplish."
Suddenly the room was flooded with excitement and anticipation. This is clearly the beginning of a powerful new chapter for Jeffco, especially Jeffco's 86,000 students. Jeffco - we can do this! All of us. Together.
