To the Students, Parents, and Community,

As superintendent of the Jefferson County Joint Vocational School, I welcome you to an outstanding career and college preparatory school. The staff and faculty of the JCJVS work to provide you with training that, when supported by parents and applied by students, helps to build knowledge and skills with democratic principles supported by meaningful instruction and hands-on learning. The school will provide guidance and supervision for students as they progress into mature and responsible decision-making adults.

As you take the courses offered at the JVS, strive to learn as much as you can about your area of study. You have opportunities to develop leadership skills through the organizations and training provided to you by leaders in your chosen field of study. You may also enjoy returning to your home school and participating in clubs, sports, and band. These areas help you to develop leadership and discipline. The JVS has dances and activities as well that can take you to places around the state and even national competitions. Your participation in College Credit Plus may also give you a start on a future area of interest. You have it all at the JVS with hands-on, work-based learning incorporated with academic skills that put you a step ahead of your fellow students. I encourage you to ask the questions and push for knowledge that make for a professional student with real world job skills.

The JVS has been working with students for over 40 years. It is some of the best career training that you can have with multiple employers on the advisory boards for each program. The relationships with the industry leaders ensures that the education that you receive at the JVS prepares you for the current job market or through some further education, it will provide you with credentials and skills for a job that pays well. Again, thank you to all who support the JVS as we serve the students of the county and surrounding area with outstanding 21st century skills that the community can be proud of now and into the future. The Board of Education, Administrators and Staff thank you for your support and believe that through dedication and hard work you are prepared for a successful career for now and into the future.
