3 Choices Welcome to JCPS Elementary schools in the Jefferson County Public School (JCPS) District focus on the basics reading, writing, math, science, and social studies but they also get students interested in a wide array of other subjects, including the arts, physical fitness, world languages, and technology. JCPS boosts success in all subjects by letting parents apply to the school or program that best meets their child s needs and matches his or her learning style. For example, the district offers a choice of elementary magnet schools and programs that are unrivaled by other school districts. From technology to the visual and performing arts to sports and physical fitness, JCPS elementary students can explore their favorite subject while they build solid skills in core subjects. At JCPS, you also get highly experienced teachers, new education technology, family-support services, and inviting campuses. Visit our schools, and you ll see for yourself how well the district helps students reach their full potential. Why do Louisville parents choose JCPS elementary schools?

All students in kindergarten through grade twelve who have not previously attended a JCPS school need to register online with the district. After registration, students who are entering kindergarten as well as older students who are new to the district may apply online to schools in the elementary cluster that serves their home address and to magnet schools, magnet programs, and Hawthorne Elementary s optional program. To find out which cluster serves your address, call the JCPS Demographics Office at (502) or use the online School- Finder at Applications also are accepted online from older JCPS elementary students who have moved or who want to apply to a magnet school, magnet program, or Hawthorne s optional program. These students do not need to complete the online registration process first. How to Register Students need to complete their initial registration on the JCPS Web site (www.jcpsky.net) from any computer with Internet access. Computers are available at the JCPS Registration Site, which is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Lam Building (4309 Bishop Lane). The English as a Second Language (ESL) Office (1325 Bluegrass Avenue) serves families who need help with English. Contact the ESL Office at (502) to make an appointment. Additional registration opportunities, including a schedule of stops for the bus that serves as the JCPS Mobile Student Registration Site, will be announced on the district Web site when they are available. (If you don t have Internet access, call [502] for the latest information.) 2

The following students should apply during this period: Students who are entering kindergarten Elementary students who have moved Elementary students who want to apply to a magnet school, a magnet program, or Hawthorne Elementary s Dual-Language Spanish Immersion Optional Program (See page 36 for information on Hawthorne s program.) The online application form and instructions are available on the district s Web site (www.jcpsky.net) and at the registration site located at 4309 Bishop Lane. See page 39 for an overview of the application process. If you don t have Internet access, call (502) for information on how to apply. After you submit your online application, some schools will ask for additional information, such as a student work sample or test score, a copy of a report card or progress report, and a checklist completed by a teacher or child-care provider. If a school asks you for additional information, please reply promptly and send the information directly to the school. Applications will be considered incomplete if requested information is not sent to a school. Before- and After- School Childcare Kids like the Childcare Enrichment Program (CEP) because it s fun. Homework help, healthy snacks, crafts, and physical activity keep kids learning and laughing. Parents like the program a partnership between JCPS and the YMCA because it provides high-quality care in a safe, familiar school enrivonment for kindergarten through eighth-grade students. Before-school care starts at 7 a.m. After-school care lasts until 6 p.m. Full-day care is available on holidays and other days when there s no school.

5 Choices Please note: Submitting an application doesn t guarantee placement in a school or program. Waiting lists are not kept from year to year. Applications can be edited only during the application period. Submitting more than one application will void the previous application. Submitting false information will void an application. The online application lets you select a first and second choice when you apply to an optional program, magnet program, or magnet school. Please note that the traditional magnet schools and the Brown School use a random-draw list if openings for new students are limited. Students will be included on the random-draw list only if they select these schools as their first choice. If openings are not limited, students who selected the schools as a second choice also will be considered for available openings. Students will be assigned to a school for the next school year before the end of the current school year. Students who are new to the district may apply to schools and programs, but choices may be limited outside the application period. Students who are not residents of Jefferson County will not be considered for placement in a school or program until all Jefferson County applicants have been considered. For more information, contact the JCPS Optional and Magnet Programs Office at (502) or the Parent Assistance Center at (502) Early Childhood Programs JCPS serves children 4 years old and younger through a range of programs designed to make the most of each child s natural desire to learn. Staff members in these programs respect you as your child s first and most important teacher, and instructors build on your efforts. Early Childhood classrooms are safe and inviting. Children are eager to come to school and to join fun, educational activities that develop awareness and abilities. For more information about tuition-based Early Childhood Programs and the income-eligibility guidelines for free services, contact the JCPS Early Childhood Office at (502) Overview of Specialized Schools and Programs Magnet programs focus on a specific subject or provide a specialized learning environment. Students who are accepted into a magnet program become a full-time student of the school that offers it and attend the school for all classes, not just the magnet program classes. Some magnet programs accept applications from students throughout the district. Some accept applications only from students who live in specific areas. JCPS provides transportation for most students who are accepted into a magnet program. Magnet schools offer unique, schoolwide curricula. Many magnet schools accept applications from students throughout the district, and JCPS provides transportation for most students who are accepted (but not at the Brown School). Hawthorne Elementary (page 36) offers the Dual-Language Spanish Immersion Program, which is the only JCPS elementary school optional program. Students who live outside Hawthorne s elementary cluster (Cluster 13) may apply and be accepted into the program, but because it is an optional program, JCPS does not provide transportation for these students. Note: Sometimes you may hear a JCPS staff member use the term resides school. This is the school that serves the student s attendance area (the area in which the student resides). 4

6 Elementary Magnet Schools and Programs JCPS magnet schools and programs focus on a specific subject (such as technology) or provide a specialized learning environment (such as a Montessori school). Students throughout the district may apply to many of the following schools and programs, but some serve students from specific elementary clusters. JCPS provides transportation for most students who are accepted into a magnet school or program (except at the Brown School). See page 3 for information on the application process. Academy for Excellence in Teaching and Learning Program Atkinson (page 34) Districtwide magnet program Expert and dynamic teachers, the most innovative and current educational practices, and access to the resources of a major metropolitan university these are a few of the benefits waiting for your child at Atkinson. Additional teachers in the Primary grades enable the school to provide small classes and reading instruction tailored to your child. Collaboration with the University of Louisville (UofL) builds on the expectation that all students will go to college. The Atkinson-UofL team evaluates the most current teaching methods and applies techniques proven to help your child excel in reading, writing, math, and science. Communications Program Breckinridge-Franklin (page 34) Magnet program for Clusters 8 through 13 Communications is a schoolwide program at Breckinridge-Franklin, and students have many opportunities to apply their communication skills to real-life situations. For example, the school newspaper and daily television broadcast are entirely written and produced by students. During the school s Power Hour, students learn leadership as they practice all types of communication, including theatre, interpersonal communication, public speaking, editing, photography, and videography. Environmental Studies Program Cane Run (page 16) Magnet program for Clusters 1 through 6 Portland (page 35) Magnet program for Clusters 7 through 13 The Environmental Studies curriculum is brought to life by outdoor investigations. They culminate in field studies at each grade level that activate students imaginations and deepen their understanding of the world. The environmental curriculum also helps students master basic academic skills and reinforces lessons in other elementary subjects, including math and science. SPOTLIGHT Teacher receives environmental education award Cane Run Elementary teacher Darleen Horton has been honored with the Trailblazing Teacher Award from the Center for Green Schools at the U.S. Green Building Council. The award recognizes outstanding educators who have demonstrated a commitment to promoting ecoliteracy and environmental sustainability in the classroom. Horton has introduced Cane Run students to environmental concepts through extensive work with the school s garden. In addition to ecology and plant science education, the garden and its water feature have become central to math, literature, and social studies lessons. Horton also received the 20l4 Joan Riehm Environmental Leadership Award from Louisville s Partnership for a Green City. Guide to Elementary Schools Gifted and Talented Program King (page 35) Districtwide magnet program Open to outstanding first- through fifth-grade students, the Gifted and Talented Program helps students learn according to their own interests and teaches them to set and reach individual goals.

Students develop lifelong healthy living habits while they enhance their criticalthinking and problem-solving skills. The Humana Foundation and other community partners support students, their families, and the community by providing classroom enrichment and after-school programs. International/Cultural Studies and Language Program Fairdale (page 21) Magnet program for Clusters 1 through 7 Goldsmith (page 30) Magnet program for Clusters 8 through 13 This program challenges students with a world-class, rigorous curriculum. The multilanguage environment, service-learning projects, and opportunities to connect with other students worldwide take students on a journey to every continent.

Dedicated adults mentor students and help them develop skills in such areas as decision making and critical thinking. Students also learn teamwork, ethical behavior, and empathy. Unique experiences contribute to the development of innovative, passionate citizen leaders. Mathematics/Science/Technology Program Wheatley (page 37) Districtwide magnet program Designed to strengthen both academic skills and problem-solving abilities, this program provides hands-on math and science learning activities in a laboratory setting. It also enhances students appreciation for cultural arts. The humanities component of the program engages students imaginations and offers them opportunities to study music, art, dance, and drama. International Baccalaureate School Young (3526 West Muhammad Ali Boulevard, ) Districtwide magnet school At Young Elementary, an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, Young minds are developed to become thinkers and inquirers through the comprehensive, globally recognized IB Primary Years Programme (PYP).

Montessori Program Kennedy Montessori (page 15) Magnet program for Clusters 1 through 8 Coleridge-Taylor Montessori (page 32) Magnet program for Clusters 9 through 13 The Montessori method of education encourages students to engage in critical thinking and self-directed learning. The curriculum provides a firm foundation in such core areas as language arts, math, science, geography, and social studies. Students of all ages work together in groups, which allows older students to act as role models and leaders for the younger students. A noncompetitive atmosphere helps all students develop teamwork and problem-solving skills as well as self-confidence, self-esteem, and social awareness. Performing Arts School Lincoln (930 East Main Street, ) Districtwide magnet school As Kentucky s only public elementary performing arts magnet school, the Lincoln Elementary Performing Arts School (LPAS) offers students a range of arts instruction, including Orff Instrumental, Vocal, Piano, Dance (ballet, modern, tap, and creative movement), and Drama (improvisation, mimicry, pantomime, roleplaying, and storytelling). Primary Program students receive instruction in all five areas. Fourth- and fifth-grade students choose two areas of focus for the school year and also may join band and orchestra. LPAS also emphasizes a strong academic program in reading, writing, math, science, and social studies. The school s performing arts curriculum complements the instruction in basic subjects while offering a thorough exploration of the performing arts through an integrated, multisensory approach to learning. The facilities at LPAS are unique, attractive, state-of-the-art spaces that provide the best artistic learning environment possible. In January 2012, LPAS unveiled its 40,000-square-foot performing arts wing. This space includes a 200-seat black box theater, two dance studios, a drama room, a piano lab, vocal and instrumental rooms, and a broadcasting area. SPOTLIGHT Noted guests visit LPAS Students at many JCPS schools often welcome special guests, including professional performers, authors, and artists. At the Lincoln Elementary Performing Arts School last year, one of the guests was Jeff Corwin, host and executive producer of cable television s Animal Planet. At a school assembly, Corwin told the LPAS students that before he began traveling the world to study animals and to sometimes rescue them from the perils of human encroachment and recklessness he was a struggling student. In fact, he was failing a biology class. What saved him and kept him interested in school was being active in theatre, which, of course, was an idea that resonated with the LPAS students. Corwin said he eventually found the focus he needed to become a stellar student and combined his theatre interest with a burgeoning passion in animals and science. Guide to Elementary Schools Community partnerships with leading arts groups provide experiences and instruction that JCPS students cannot get anywhere else. Students experience professional performances both in school and at such venues as the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts. Professional instructors from such organizations as the Louisville Ballet, Stage One Family Theatre, and Presto Strings! provide after-school instruction. Performers and visual artists often serve in-school residencies. 7

Self-Directed Learning School Brown (546 South First Street, ) Districtwide magnet school Serving more than 725 elementary, middle, and high school students in the same building, the Brown School s mission is to recognize, respect, and foster the unique potential of each student in an informal environment that reflects the diversity of our community. This mission lends itself to true student-led exploration. It is a school community where innovation and creativity are encouraged and highly regarded. Applicants should be able to function in a less-structured learning environment and possess age-appropriate social skills to be successful at the school. To apply to the Brown School, you need to complete the JCPS online application (see page 3), and parents and students applying to kindergarten must tour the school. For all other grades, parents and students must attend an open house or a scheduled building tour. After you submit your application, the Brown staff will contact you and ask for additional information, including a recommendation from a teacher or a child-care provider. Applicants for grades one through five will also need to supply a copy of their current year s academic and attendance record. Brown considers geographic diversity in selecting students. Most students enter the school in kindergarten, so openings may be very limited at other grade levels. The JCPS online application lets you select a first and a second choice when you apply to a magnet program or school, but note that the Brown School uses a random-draw list if openings for new students are limited. Students will be included on the random-draw list only if they select the Brown school as their first choice. If openings are not limited, students who selected Brown as a second choice also will be considered for available openings. Parents of siblings who share the same birth date (twins, triplets, etc.) must submit a separate application for each child, but these applications will be treated as one application. Brown does not give admission preference to siblings of current students. Transportation is not provided for Brown School students. Talent Development Program Byck (page 32) Districtwide magnet program The Talent Development Magnet curriculum is based on the principles of active learning, multiple intelligences, arts in education, integrated themes, projectbased learning, and student choice. Through a combination of an arts-infused curriculum and rigorous academic expectations, students develop their artistic, academic, and creative talents. Byck provides Talented and Gifted services and differentiated instruction for all Advance Program students. 8

10 Technology Program Roosevelt-Perry (page 33) Districtwide magnet program Roosevelt-Perry is a school where students build robots from scratch, join class discussions through tablet computers, and get ready for leadership roles in our high-tech world. The students learn not only engineering, science, and math but also how the subjects build on each other. For example, the engineering curriculum expands the science curriculum to a higher level. Students collaborate with other students both locally and internationally through podcasts, Webinars, wikis, and blogs. The program helps prepare students to apply to middle school math, science, and technology magnet programs. Roosevelt-Perry provides the Advance Program for students in grades four and five, talent-development services for younger students, and differentiated instruction for all. Traditional Education Traditional education provides a back-to-basics learning environment characterized by: A focus on core subjects and grade-level coursework. Highly structured, orderly classrooms that require nightly homework and strict adherence to school rules (including dress codes). A mission centered on time-tested instructional approaches that help students build basic knowledge and gain high competence in fundamental skills. At the following traditional magnet elementary schools, students are assigned based on their home address: Audubon Traditional (1051 Hess Lane) Carter Traditional (3600 Bohne Avenue) Greathouse/Shryock Traditional (2700 Browns Lane) Schaffner Traditional (2701 Crums Lane) The Traditional Magnet Program is available at Foster Traditional Academy (page 14) and Shelby Traditional Academy (page 35). Both schools accept applications from students throughout the district. All six schools are part of the traditional education feeder pattern to Barret Traditional, Jefferson County Traditional, and Johnson Traditional Middle Schools. Wilkerson Traditional Elementary (page 15) and Smyrna Traditional Elementary (page 25) offer traditional education, but they are not part of the feeder pattern to the traditional middle schools. Parents of siblings who share the same birth date (twins, triplets, etc.) who are applying to a traditional elementary magnet school or program must submit a separate application for each child, but these applications will be treated as one application. See page 3 for details on the application process. Traditional schools do not give priority to siblings of students previously enrolled. Because most students enter a traditional school or program in kindergarten, openings may be limited in other grades. The JCPS online application lets you select a first and a second choice when you apply to a magnet program or school, but note that the traditional magnet schools use a random-draw list if openings for new students are limited. Students will be included on the random-draw list only if they select traditional schools as their first choice. If openings are not limited, students who select the schools as a second choice also will be considered for available openings. Transportation is provided for most students accepted into a traditional magnet school or program. If you have questions, contact the school to which you are applying or call the Optional and Magnet Programs Office at Visual and Performing Arts Program King (page 35) Districtwide magnet program This program is available for students in grades one through five who audition and exhibit interest and potential in one of the school s Talent Pool areas: Creative Drama, African Dance/Ballet/Jazz, Gymnastics, Piano/Keyboard, Visual Arts, Drawing and Painting, Martial Arts, Show Choir, Spirit of the Drum, or Fencing. Through a combination of opportunities in the arts and rigorous academic expectations, King students receive a well-balanced education.
