Message from the Superintendent

Mr.-Melton

Thank you for your interest in Jac-Cen-Del Schools and learning more about all of the opportunities we have to offer.  We provide a wide-range of academic programs and extracurricular activities to prepare students for success.  At JCD, we have a rich history in not only academics, but our extra-curricular programs as well.  Jac-Cen-Del is consistently ranked among the best of Southeastern Indiana.  In the most recent state report card, Jac-Cen-Del Community School Corporation received a "B" rating.  In addition, Jac-Cen-Del Elementary received a "B" rating while Jac-Cen-Del High School received an "A" rating.

In this technological age, we continuously strive to push innovating learning, such as Project Lead the Way (PLTW), in a wide array of courses throughout the district.  We have also invested a great deal to prepare our staff and students in the use of technology as every student in the district has an electronic device.

At Jac-Cen-Del, we have strong partnerships with the Southeastern Indiana Career Center, Ivy Tech, and Indiana University.  We also offer extra-curricular activities in programs such as music, art, robotics, and FFA just to name a few.  These activities, along with our athletic programs, gives all our students the opportunity to get involved in areas of interest.

We would welcome the opportunity to show you our district and what makes Jac-Cen-Del a truly special place to be.  Where we strive for academic and extracurricular excellence to give Every Student, Every Chance, Every Day.

Sincerely,

Sam Melton
Superintendent

Federal Free Meal Waiver Ends

school-lunch

Jac-Cen-Del Community Schools wants to remind families that the free school meals program is funded by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is ending. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, school corporations across the country have been operating with the use of a federal waiver that allowed them to feed every child for free through the end of this school year. The use of this waiver will not be available after this school year and corporations will return to the traditional eligibility requirements for free, reduced and paid meals. This means that for School Year 2022-2023, our school corporation will process free and reduced-price meal benefit applications.  To review how to apply for free and reduced meals after July 1, click here:

Parents & Students

As of yesterday, April 2, 2020, there was an announcement from Dr. Jennifer McCormick, our State Superintendent, declared that as of now the rest of the 2019-2020 school year will be only through e-learning and the use of waiver days. As you are aware, we have sent out a calendar for the remainder of April and we will put out another one for May very soon.

That being said, the administrative team has been working closely with all teachers to ensure they are prepared and ready to give your child/ren the best academic experience we can through online communication (zoom, email, etc.)

I know the bulk of concern surrounds seniors and our parents of seniors. We will be posting a FAQ on our website and Facebook in the very near future that will give you answers to some of the pressing questions you may have.

In the same light, most of the parents and students that are reaching out is in regards to the graduation ceremony. The administrative team is meeting, again, this morning to discuss all possibilities and options. We have to consider everything from a delayed ceremony to creative measures if we are still under the guidelines of a quarantine. I want to reassure all of you that it is our intent to hold a ceremony that will honor every graduating senior in the highest degree. We have discussed some very creative measures and, as this is not ideal for anyone, we feel it is extremely important to declare every eligible senior a graduate.

The administration will keep you updated as Governor Holcomb and Dr. Jennifer McCormick determine the course of our state and county's quarantine guidelines. Look for additional documents to be posted very soon to our website and Facebook page for further guidance.

I thank each and every one of you for understanding the state of education and the health of our county/state.

In Education,

Ryan Middleton
Superintendent

Closed after spring break for one week

As we continue to navigate through these unprecedented times, our primary goal is to keep staff, students, and families safe as we literally receive new information by the hour. Please know that JAC-CEN-DEL COMMUNITY SCHOOL is continuing to work very closely with the Ripley County Health Department and Emergency Management, and heeding the advice from The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to try to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Here are Jac-Cen-Del Community Schools next steps:

  1. All buildings will be closed after spring break for one week, March 30-April 3. Governor Holcomb is allowing all school districts to have twenty Covid-19 waiver days that are not required to be made up. This five-day break from March 30-April 3 will utilize five of the twenty Covid-19 waiver days. After the five days, we will continue with the below schedule:
    • Monday No School
    • Tuesday E-Learning
    • Wednesday E-Learning
    • Thursday E-Learning
    • Friday No School
    As we are not a school that currently provides E-Learning, we are bringing our teachers in to train them. This will look differently in the Elementary than the Jr./Sr. High school. Parents, please be flexible as we will be flexible with our students. 
  2. All April field trips are cancelled. May field trips will be reviewed towards the end of April or unless advised earlier.
  3. All April after school activities are cancelled. May after school activities will be reviewed towards the end of April or unless advised earlier.
  4. No outside visitors will be permitted unless approved by the building administrator.
  5. All extra-curricular events and practices are cancelled until further notice.
  6. Food services will continue to operate on every Tuesday and Thursday. More communication will be posted on Facebook JCD Parents page and our updated website as we gather information.
  7. Any Jr. /Sr. High or Elementary parents that need to pick up their child's device or homework on days off will call the office between 8:00-12:00 to let the front office know they are coming to pick it up.

All devices will be handed to parents in their cars so no one is entering the schools. Any parent that cannot pick up a student device during these times needs to call the school's front office and confirm a time they can pick up the device later that day.

Everyone is aware of the alarming rate at which this situation is changing. We promise to update everyone when local, state, or federal health department's recommendations create a change in our educational world.

Again, I appreciate your partnership in keeping our students and staff safe and healthy.

Sincerely,

Ryan Middleton
Superintendent
