JAGS stands for Jefferson Academy of Growth and Success. Children are selected to participate in this intervention program through teacher referral. For this program, Jefferson teachers teach a small class of scholars and focus on topics after school in their classrooms. Scholars work toward proficiency on targeted standards identified through multiple measures, including classroom and district assessments. Your child may or may not be with their regular classroom teacher during this time. Scholars are placed based on the standard of need to reach grade-level proficiency.
