School Registration Forms for the Beginning of School

We have now posted the Beginning of School Packet that is sent home with your child when school starts. There are some very important papers that must be filled out for your child. These are here if you would like to print them and fill them out ahead of time. We also have them available at school. These forms will also be sent home with your child on the first day of school. Please fill out at your earliest convenience.

JCPS Approved for the Non-Traditional Instructional Program

Superintendent Mike Smith received the announcement below relating to the NTID application:


It is my pleasure to inform you that Jackson County Schools has been approved to participate in KDE’s Non-Traditional Instruction (NTI) Program for the 2016-2017 school year.  We saw a dramatic increase in the number of districts applying for the program this year and the quality of plans was significantly higher.  The application review committee scored your district’s application for the Non-Traditional Instruction program as proficient or above.



Teachers will be receiving information regarding NTID during the August PLAN day and on Opening Day.  Parents will be receiving information when the district finalizes all NTID plans.
