• Dear Jordan Public Schools Community, Families and Prospective Families,

    Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! As Interim Superintendent, I would like to be the first to welcome you to Jordan Public Schools.  I hope you will take time to fully explore our website, social media, and get to know our district.  The anticipation and planning for Back to School 2020 is unprecedented.  In this unique time, I want to assure you that student and staff health and safety are a priority as we strive to provide a solid educational experience for your child.  

    Our team has been busily planning a variety of education models under the direction of the Minnesota Department of Education.  We anticipate clarity from the Department of Education during the week of July 27th to shape how we move forward in Jordan.  Regardless of the instructional model, we can assure safe and welcoming learning environments, valuable learning experiences and caring relationships for our students.  We will continue to be your partners in your child’s education.  

    I'd also invite you to "Like Us" on Facebook , and "Follow Us" on Twitter or Instagram. We work hard to tell our story and it provides current and prospective families with a nice snapshot of the happenings at JPS.

    Should you have any questions about Jordan Public Schools, please do not hesitate to reach out and we can discuss how Jordan can benefit your child and family. Jordan is a special community and I'm proud to be the leader of Jordan Public Schools! Thank you for allowing me to serve the school community.

    Sincerely,

    Ranae Case Evenson  |  Interim Superintendent
