2015-2016 Title I Reward District - We are pleased to announce once again that the Jefferson City School System is one of four Title I districts being recognized as a Reward District for having the highest absolute performance over three years for the “all students” group on the statewide assessments, among districts of their size. Each year, Title I Reward Districts are named in four categories: large districts with 10,000 or more students, medium districts with 4,000 to 9,999 students, small districts with 2,000 to 3,999 students and extra-small districts with fewer than 2,000 students. The school system will receive a $50,000 reward for this outstanding accomplishment.
Jefferson Academy has been designated as a 2016 "Highest Performing" Reward School based on Title I status and state assessment results. A "Highest Performing School" is a Title I school among the 5% of Title I schools in the state having the highest absolute performance for the "all students" group over three years on statewide assessments.
