Superintendentís Report on Schools - 1909

 

Transcribed and edited April 7, 2008 for the Jefferson County Historical Society by Jerry McKee.

 

This receipt stub book, located in the History Center at Jefferson College is dated September 13 through December 15, 1909. The records reflect the School Superintendentís visits to the 71 school districts that made up Jefferson County during that time. The underlying theme seemed to be that the school boards did not communicate well with their teachers. We hope you enjoy this wonderful snapshot into a little known time period during horse and buggy days.

 

School **names** were added for clarification purposes.
