Campers are exposed to the latest music and video production tools, such as Garage Band, Pro Tools, Reason, and iMovie. They learn how to compose and record their own songs and will gain real-world experience in the state-of-the-art recording studios and music tech labs at Audiostate 55. Camp sessions are for one week and meet daily from 9:00am - 4:00pm. It includes lunch each day from local establishments such as Jason's Deli, Roly Poly, and Pizza Hut.

JEFFCO PRE K GRANTS - The Jefferson County School System is accepting applications for the 2015-2016 First Class Pre-K classrooms located at Brighton School, Center Point Elementary, Crumly Chapel Elementary, Minor Community School, Oak Grove Elementary, and Warrior Elementary. These schools were chosen based on community data such as need. For example, neither Oak Grove nor West Jefferson has Pre-K programs available in their attendance zones. Jefferson County School System received six First Class Pre-K grants for the 2015-16 school year totally $900,000. This is the first time JefCoEd has applied for such grants and its due to encouragement from the new superintendent when he took the job last year. These grants are part of Governor Bentley's plan to offer Pre-K on a voluntary basis to all four year olds in Alabama. Applications are available at the individual schools, the Jefferson County Board Office, and at jefcoed.com/pre-k. Applications are due by noon on July 6, 2015. The students are selected through a public lottery. The lotteries will be held during the week of July 6th. Each classroom will house a maximum of 18 students with a Pre-K teacher and Pre-K assistant. The Jefferson County School System plans to apply for additional grants during the 2015-16 school year and eventually have a Pre-K classroom in each elementary school.
