Groups Opposing WNW’s Agenda

  • Support Jeffco Kids.  “SJK” is a 501(c)4 organization, and so can accept donations and engage in political activities.  It has worked hard at organizing opposition to WNW policies in the community, and they seem to be one of the key groups.  You can join their mailing list here, and donate here.

  • Jeffco ExodusWhat they are (from their ‘About us’ page):
    Gathering facts, Sharing stories
    Jeffco Exodus is a community network focused on two primary activities:

    • Gathering and sharing factual information to raise awareness

    • Sharing teacher, staff and family stories of exodus from Jeffco

    We’re hoping to have two or more volunteers in every Jeffco school – neighborhood, option and charter – to establish a communications network through which we can  share factual information. Jeffco has a problem – the new School Board Majority. But not enough people in Jeffco understand the issues. We want to raise community awareness.”

    Jeffco Exodus is run entirely by Jeffco parents and is in no way affiliated with any professional associations or other formal organizations.​

    Who they are looking for (volunteers):

    Parents with children in JeffCo schools.  “We hope to have at least two people at every Jeffco school who can quickly disseminate factual information we will share.”

  • Citizens For Responsible Education is focused on reaching out to those in JeffCo who do not have a direct connection to the school district.  Their mission is to help those citizens realize that the fate of JeffCo’s schools, students, and teachers directly impacts their business, their jobs, their home values, and them.
  • Your local PTA.  Even if you do not have a child in school, your local PTA can use your help and input. Michelle Patterson, the President of JeffCo PTA, gave a blistering speech to WNW at the meeting.  What ever happens, the JeffCo PTA will be in the thick of things.  Either contact your local school or the County PTA here: JeffCo PTA Volunteers.
  • Jeffco Students For Change  is a group of students representing most or all of Jefferson County’s high schools that have gotten together to add their voice to the public outcry against the WNW deconstruction of their schools.  If nothing else, go and ‘Like’ their page.  These are students we all should be very proud of!
  • JeffCo School Board Watch is a group of concerned parents and Jeffco residents who have taken up the task of monitoring and chronicling the actions of the Jefferson County School Board.  We are always looking for dedicated writers, researchers, and editors.  Even if it is just taking notes at a Board meeting, or keeping an eye on different internet sites, if you have the time and the commitment to keeping the public consistently and fully informed, you can help!  Click on the link above to find out how to contact us.

  1. Hello: I’m wondering if you still have access to the letter to your students from college professors saying that any transgressions on their transcripts was because of the protests etc and that they were future leaders and this was what colleges were looking for? With the students protesting the testing many are being told they will be suspended etc. and are getting pressured to not act in a civilly disobedient manner. I think that letter might be a boost to them. If you still have the link and wouldn’t mind posting it to your site or send it to Opt Out of the StateTest: the national movement Facebook that would be great. I am also on Facebook or make it accessible here. I understand if there is any reason not to do so. It was meant for your students. I see direct parallels with what your students did and students across the country are doing now. Thank you Becky
