Capital Project Update
Plans for the capital project approved by voters in May 2017 were submitted to the State Education Department and approved December 2018.  The project was bid March 4, 2019. The District awarded contracts at the March 13, 2019 Board of Education meeting. We expect construction to begin this spring and continue through the summer.  We anticipate the new stadium to be ready for use for the 2019-2020 school year.  It's hard to be patient, but good things take time! 

Smart School Bond Projects
South Jefferson is currently awaiting approval from SED on two Smart School projects that will begin to utilize the $1.9 million of aid earmarked for our district in the State’s Smart Bond Initiative. Smart School funds must be used for specific purposes such as improving access to technology and enhancing school safety and security. Phase 1 proposes the installation of a district-wide VOIP telecommunication system that will allow for more efficient, reliable communication within and between district buildings. Phase 2 provides for the installation of a classroom notification system that provide audio, visual, and digital emergency communications as well as additional security cameras and security software upgrades. We hope to be able to begin implementation of Phase 1 by this fall and Phase 2 by next summer. Future phases will continue to be informed by the district’s goals, Building Conditions Survey, and Technology Plan.
