Statement from JCPS Superintendent Dr. Donna Hargens

JCPS a district that prides itself on equity with excellence

July 28, 2016 – “Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS) is a district that prides itself on equity with excellence and strives daily to be the best urban school district in America. That’s why we appreciate and welcome input from our stakeholders on all issues impacting the district. And, when necessary, we will provide guidance to our schools to ensure their policies are not obtrusive, do not conflict with Board policy and most importantly do not infringe on the many cultures embraced across our school district.

We appreciate that Butler Traditional Principal Allen is calling a special meeting of the School-Based Decision Making (SBDM) Council – comprised of parents, teachers and the principal – to have this conversation. Additionally, we are reaching out to all school SBDM Councils, encouraging them to review their own dress code policies currently in place.”
