City-Wide Parent Council

Representatives of the district's PTOs/PTAs meet monthly to discuss issues key to their work. The City-Wide Parent Organization will post information at this web site when necessary.

In February, City-Wide PTO provided all School Board candidates with an opportunity to share information with PTO/PTA members. The letter we sent to candidates is below. The responses City-Wide PTO received from five of the six candidates can be found here. We hope this information will be helpful to families as they determine which candidates will be representing them on the JCPS Board of Education.

Letter to School Board Candidates Requesting Information
February 2017

Dear Candidates for Jefferson City School Board:

The City-Wide Parent Teacher Council unites the 15 Jefferson City Public School PTA/ PTOs and provides opportunities to share information and networking. In order to let families in the district know more about the candidates running for the Jefferson City School Board positions, the City-Wide Parent Teacher Council asks that each candidate share information about themselves and their candidacy.

Questions for Board of Education Candidates:

1. Please share with us your personal and professional background.

2. Why do you want to serve on the JCPS Board of Education?

3. What involvement have you had, or have, with the public schools?

4. Please share any additional information you feel our families may wish to know about you.

We appreciate your time to answer these questions and will share the information with the PTO/PTAs throughout the district in March. Please limit your responses to a total of two (2) pages. The responses will be listed in the order they are received. Responses will not be subject to editing, spelling correction or reformatting.

Thank you for your interest and willingness to serve the Jefferson City Public School District.
