Changes for Modified In-Person Families
Jefferson Families -
There will be another transition on October 12th for MODIFIED In-Person ONLY.
Remote Students will REMAIN in Remote Monday-Friday with their current teacher and continue like they have been doing since September 14th.
Based on the current metrics for COVID, on October 12th MPS and Jefferson will move to Modified In-Person Learning for five days per week. Our A and B group students will come to school together, five days a week. For Jefferson this means we will move from having approximately 140 students on campus at once to approximately 280 students. We will continue the safety practices that have been in place during the Modified In-Person; masks will be required, limited movement during lunch and Specials, desks/tables facing forward, etc. (See MPS Health & Safety Guidelines for more information). Because of the increased number of students in the classrooms, 6-foot distancing will no longer be possible. We will do our best to ensure that 3-foot minimum distances are maintained in the classrooms.
A+ School of Excellence
"The A+ School of Excellence™ program celebrates outstanding schools throughout Arizona and calls attention to the positive stories and successes occurring in public schools," explains Bobbie O'Boyle, AEF executive director. "We applaud these schools for going above and beyond the norm to meet their students' needs and for achieving overall success despite the many challenges that face the education community statewide."
Since 1983, the foundation has honored A+ Schools of Excellence™ to give recognition to remarkable Arizona public schools. Schools submit applications that document demographic information, current programs and practices, parent and community involvement, the school's leadership and commitment to excellence, equity, service and high achievement.
To earn an A+ award, schools must show high achievement or significant improvement. Top schools identify and meet the academic and non-academic needs of their students. A panel that includes award-winning principals, teachers and community leaders selects A+ Schools of Excellence™ after conducting site visits throughout the state.
Each of this year's 39 award-winning schools receives $500 and an A+ School of Excellence™ banner. All staff and faculty at winning schools are eligible for partial scholarships from Argosy University, Phoenix. Schools hold their A+ title for three and a half years. Mesa currently has 27 A+ Schools of Excellence™.
