The Student Achievement Measure is supported by six sponsoring associations, working together to provide a more comprehensive and accurate picture of student progress and completion as students move across institutions and state boundaries.

Jefferson Community College

Jefferson Community College is located in Watertown, New York, the county seat of the College’s sponsor, Jefferson County. Nestled in the northern section of New York State, at the junction of Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River, Jefferson County spans an area of nearly 1,300 square miles, making it the ninth largest county in the state. Jefferson County shares the St. Lawrence River boundary with the Province of Ontario, Canada, to the north and travel across the international border is facilitated by the Thousand Islands Bridge. The proximity of the Thousand Islands and the Seaway Trail, the abundance of recreational lakes and rivers and the rich history and natural resources of the area make travel and tourism among the region’s economic drivers. Jefferson County is also home to the 10th Mountain Division, Light Infantry, stationed at nearby Fort Drum. Fort Drum is the largest Army installation in the Northeast and between the brigades of the 10th Mountain Division and tenant military units, the Fort serves more than 18,000 troops and an equal or larger number of family members. With the addition of a civilian workforce of more than 4,000, Fort Drum is the largest employer in Northern New York.
