In addition to assisting with issues involving student assignment, student behavior supports and other services available to JCPS families, the district will offer several additional services at the office, including after-school tutoring, student employment assistance, and homeless support, through a variety of partnerships.

The Beech—JCPS is partnering with The Beech to offer after-school tutoring to students at the Satellite Office @ Shawnee. The Beech was founded to assist children living in the Russell neighborhood and other economically disenfranchised neighborhoods in Louisville with successful transitions to work and postsecondary education. Through educational and other related services, The Beech works with parents to empower them with the skills they need to support their child’s learning and development. The Beech will relocate all programs and activities to the Satellite Office @ Shawnee and offer services from that location.

Project One—JCPS is partnering with Project One to offer resources and assistance to students regarding employment. Project One is a community-based, nonprofit educational organization serving disadvantaged youth and adults by facilitating successful transitions into postsecondary education and employment opportunities. With shared space at the new Satellite Office @ Shawnee, Project One can provide services and programs that strengthen its ongoing partnership with the community and JCPS.

Northwest Neighborhood Place—JCPS is partnering with Northwest Neighborhood Place to offer homeless education and foster care services to families. Neighborhood Place works with communities to provide blended and accessible health, education, employment and human services that support children in their progress toward self-sufficiency.
