STRATEGIC INITIATIVE V

ENGAGEMENT IN EXTRA AND

CO-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

The Jamestown Public School District will provide a school experience that includes the opportunity to participate and excel in diverse and high quality extra and co-curricular activities. We believe that these opportunities will enhance student learning and help mold students to ensure they are ready to positively impact their communities

Goal 1:  Diverse and High-Quality Activities That Enhance Learning
The Jamestown Public School District will provide meaningful opportunities through a diverse offering of activities for all students. These activities will include fine arts, STEM, leadership and athletic activities, which will provide a united and community-based relationship between the school and stakeholders.
