The Jefferson City School District will provide an opportunity this week to share questions or concerns regarding the district's re-entry plan for the 2020-21 school year.

The district will host a virtual "Back to JC Schools Re-entry Q&A" session, via livestream, from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Friday.

The first hour will be spent addressing questions and concerns received from staff members, and the second hour will address questions and concerns received from families, according to the district's announcement.

Recognizing many topics may overlap, district officials said participants are free to join for as much of the two-hour session as possible.

Participants in the Q&A session will include JC Schools Superintendent Larry Linthacum, Chief of Learning Shelby Scarbrough, CFO/COO Jason Hoffman, Director of Health Services Chad Sooter, Director of Communications Ryan Burns and a representative from the Cole County Health Department.

The Q&A session can be viewed on the district's YouTube channel at

Anyone with questions or concerns they would like addressed during the session should submit them in advance via email to [email protected] by 4 p.m. Thursday.

District officials said they will do their best to answer as many questions as possible during the livestream, but if they run out of time, they will provide responses directly to those submitting questions or post them to the district's website.

The full "Back to JC Schools Re-entry Plan" is available at Schools.
