Changes come with new school year

Summer vacation is over for almost a 100,000 Jefferson County students.  With a new school year come some changes and new faces.

Principal David Mike patrolled the halls of Western High school.  He wanted to make sure the first day was going as smoothly as possible and that students were where they were supposed to be.

Mike is one of 13 new principals across the district.  He also had the added pressure of welcoming superintendent Sheldon Berman for a brief tour.

There are some new rules for this school year.  For the first time all high schools across the district are on a trimester schedule with three 12 week schedules.

Elementary and middle school students will take part in a new program called Care for Kids.  It's designed to teach social skills, to treat one another with respect and to deal with conflict without a physical confrontation.
