JCPSForward - Join the Movement!
When a small group of educators came together in the summer of 2015, we had one goal that still remains at the heart of our work. We wanted to create a connective tissue of positive, solutions-oriented educators in JCPS. To date, we've engaged with nearly 1,500 educators in the district through virtual and in person conversations and teacher led professional learning. "Joining" the movement is simple - take part in any of our initiatives or just share on social media or in person with peers. We want to make sustainable change in the climate and culture of JCPS and we need your help!
