INCLEMENT WEATHER INFORMATION
As we start to wind down fall and look to colder weather blowing in, it is a good time for us all to remember how you will be informed of school closures in the event of bad weather.
The Jackson Local School District first will inform parents via the Jackson Local School District app for iPhone and Android of school closures. The district also will send a robo-call, text message, and email of a school closure. Traditional media outlets (locally WHBC and the Canton Repository) as well as Cleveland news television stations will be informed of school closures. The Jackson Local website will be the first site updated with closing information as well.
For parents of children who may need childcare in the event school is closed, please begin to plan to have a trusted family member or friend provide care. Another option is to sign up in advance for childcare through the Paul & Carol David YMCA in Jackson Township. PLEASE NOTE: In order to utilize the YMCA childcare, you must complete registration in advance and have that on file with the David YMCA before using the service. You can find that information here or download the registration information right below.
Families utilizing Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services may be eligible for childcare assistance. You can find more information on the ODJFS website by touching or clicking here.

JACKSON LOCAL SEEKS TO SERVE CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES
Within the intent of the federal statutes (Rehabilitation Act of 1973-section 504 and Individuals with Disabilities Education Act IDEA-public law 105-17), the Jackson Local School District continues its effort to locate and identify children with disabilities from birth through age 21. Children with disabilities have physical, emotional, and or mental impairments that may require special education. Public schools provide free and appropriate education regardless of a child’s disability. However, before these children can be served, they must be found. Many of these children are not visible because they may not function in the community’s mainstream, and many are preschoolers. Parents may not realize that programs and services are available through their school district or from agencies in their community. If you are aware of a child who may need a special education program or services, contact Kathy Brand, Jackson Local School District’s Special Programs Director with any question you may have regarding the above notice at 330-830-8006.
