“We grow accustomed to the dark, when light is put away.”
JCEA is not one single person alone, but all of us working together to raise our collective voices for all our students. We partner with people in the community in order to create the best possible public schools for our families.
In 2015, there were more than 2,400 students in Jeffco Schools who didn’t have a permanent home or a hot meal to go home to at night. As educators we know this affects their ability to perform in the classroom and as human beings we know what this can do to a student’s spirit. Every spring, we lead Grub Club in order to ensure all students experiencing homelessness in Jeffco can have food throughout the school year.
Every Child, Every Day
We are proud to partner with Support Jeffco Kids in order to ensure all kids in Jefferson County have safe, welcoming, neighborhood schools.
Jeffco Safe Schools
Jeffco Safe Schools Coalition is a coalition of parents, caregivers, teachers, students, and community members that work to support our LGBTQ+ students and families in Jeffco.
