Message from JPS Superintendent Bret Apthorpe
It has come to my attention that there is some misinformation out in our community regarding the future of advanced high school courses. I apologize for these rumors. As Superintendent, I wanted to ensure that the truth is communicated directly to our families:
Just to be clear, regarding advanced high school courses including AT courses, the only action that is currently taking place is the creation of a community/school committee to review our present course structure. The committee’s charge is to make recommendations, if necessary, to ensure equitable access and opportunity for all students; increase our college credit and AP courses/enrollment; and have a weighting system that aligns with modern college expectations. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at 483-4420 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Health-related absences are a key cause of children missing too much school. A groundbreaking statement on chronic absence released by the American Academy of Pediatrics calls attention to the critical role that pediatricians can play in educating families and communities about how to prevent health-related absences. "The Link Between School Attendance and Good Health" encourages health care providers to promote strong attendance through interactions with patients and their families. Pediatricians can also advocate for policies that help reduce chronic absence in the community, and the state and federal policy levels. Find the policy statement here.
