REPORT CARDS AVAILABLE TODAY ON THE HOME ACCESS CENTER (HAC)

Report cards are ready for you and your child to view. Go to the Jackson Local School District Home page to choose the Home Access Center (HAC) which is listed on the left hand side "Quick Links" menu. Log in to the Home Access Center (HAC) , click on Grades and then you will see 3 tabs, one of which is titled "Report Card". Press that first tab titled "Report Card" and you will see your child's report card. Please know that the GPA is for the nine weeks and your child's attendance will not show up on the Report Card Tab. Also, if your child attends a different school for a Career Tech program they may not have a grade entered yet as their grading periods are different from ours. If you have a student that is enrolled in a CCP course you will only see their final grade for the course listed on the report card per College Credit Plus policy. If you are unable to access your child's grades for one reason or another or have a question about a grade please email us here at Jackson High School. Also, remember that Jackson High School will be mailing home a final printed report card at the end of school year in May.

JHS NO WORK WEEKENDS THROUGHOUT THE SCHOOL YEAR

In order to support family connection, rest, stress reduction and just plain fun, Jackson High School has implemented four planned no homework weekends for students and staff. This means no homework assigned, no projects due and no tests or quizzes the day students get back to school from that weekend. If students have make-up work they need to get it done to get caught up and have it ready to turn in. Some CCP and Career Tech assignments are out of my control and may need done over these weekends according to those calendars. But, for the most part, students and staff can have long weekends where they don't need to worry about homework and can relax, recharge and destress!!!



This will happen on the following weekends:

  • January 14-17
  • February 18-21
  • April 15-17

SENIOR MEMORY MESSAGES AND YEARBOOK ORDERS

Parents and grandparents often order congratulation messages in the yearbook. If your family would like to celebrate your senior, go to Jostens.com and look for Recognition Ads. Make sure to use Jackson High School Massillon to find our school. Yearbooks can still be ordered at Jostens.com.

COLLEGE PARENT CENTRAL LINK

Designed to give information, and food for thought, about college and about parenting a college student. If you have a son or daughter currently attending college, or getting ready to go to college, we hope that you will find this website helpful!

STUDENT BEHAVIOR AT EXTRA-CURRICULAR EVENTS

The Jackson Local School District encourages students to attend as many arts and athletic events as student wish. However, this is an important reminder to speak with your child(ren) about behavior at those events. Extra-curricular events are an extension of the school day and the rules and policies students must follow during the school day apply for those events.

However, we expect our students to behave at those events with respect for the officials and participants. Our student code of conduct applies to extra-curricular events.

SCHOOL FEES POSTED ON THE HOME ACCESS CENTER (HAC)

Please know that school fees for the 2021-2022 school year and past due fees from prior school years are posted to the Home Access Center (HAC). Families may pay for school fees via credit card, cash or check made out to Jackson Local Schools. To pay by credit card you may call in to the JHS Main Office or use PaySchools Central.
