Jefferson Elementary open enrollment

Open Enrollment for Jefferson Elementary STREAM School

Cape Girardeau Public Schools is excited to extend the invitation to any family with elementary-aged children living within the CGPS zone to apply to attend Jefferson Elementary STREAM School for the 2019-2020 school year.  

Families living inside the Jefferson zone are guaranteed a spot at the school and do not need to fill out an application.  The District is opening approximately 20 spots per grade level, K-4, for families living outside the Jefferson Elementary school zone.  Applications are being accepted until March 1, 2019. Those living outside the Jefferson zone will be responsible for their own transportation.  

If you are interested in learning more about the STREAM initiative at Jefferson, please join us for one of our Open House events.

Open House Dates:

Tuesday, January 29, 2019 from 6:00-7:00 p.m.

Saturday, February 2, 2019 from 10:00-11:00 a.m.

Jefferson Elementary is located at 520 South Minnesota Street

In January of 2018, CGPS announced plans to enhance the educational opportunities at Jefferson Elementary by implementing the STREAM (Science, Technology, Research, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) Model.  Since that announcement, district and school leaders have worked together to create an action plan to immerse students in holistic, hands-on learning that empowers children to reach their full learning potential.  

Anyone interested in filling out an application may print the Jefferson Open Enrollment Form and return it to the District Registrar at 301 N. Clark.  Paper copies are available at the same location. For more information or to ask questions, please call 573-335-1867.
