What staff are saying about USD 339

I started my career at JCN as a bus driver in 2010. I left the district for 4 1/2 years but returned in the summer of 2022 as the district office secretary/treasurer. The JCN family has given me the support needed to be successful in the position. I am a JCN alumni, along with my children, so it is good to be a Charger again.. ---Teri Coppinger

I have been in education for 22 years. I have worked in multiple school districts in four different states. JCN has been an absolute dream job! As a school administrator I heavily value that the superintendent is open and willing to listen to input from all staff members. The board is also very supportive and caring. The teachers and support staff are all very dedicated to our students and are always willing to step up to the plate to do what is best for kids. The parent support in this district is like nothing I have seen before. It is phenomenal. I absolutely LOVE working for JCN! ---Dr. Bobbie Meier

Our School Community

Jefferson County North, Unified School District #339, is located in the northeast corner of Jefferson County. The district encompasses 114 square miles. Much of this land is in Jefferson County, with very small sections extending into Atchison and Leavenworth counties. This area includes the two towns of Nortonville and Winchester.

The district has impressive, well-maintained, technology rich attendance centers including an elementary middle school (Preschool-8th grade) facility built in 1997, located in Nortonville, and a recently renovated high school (9-12th grade) facility built in 1980, located in Winchester. The other main building in the district serves as the district office and high school technology center, also located in Winchester.

Jefferson County North is a great place to work and live where children come first, and exciting things happen.
