    Welcome to the Jefferson School District website for information regarding the Oregon Work Share Program. The Oregon Work Share Program can provide benefits to employees when an employer must reduce work hours for budget or workload reasons. Jefferson  School District is participating in this program in order to reduce payroll expenses while allowing eligible employees to receive Work Share + CARES benefits to offset the loss of wages.
