Jefferson Area teachers from Lumberg Elementary, Edgewater Elementary, Molholm Elementary and Jefferson Junior/Senior High are leading an effort to wrap the community around the local schools. Over the next few weeks they are leading a series of forums to listen to the community.
Here are more details on their efforts:
