Preschool Receives New Furniture

Preschool1Community Action Council (CAC) South Central Head Start, began their partnership with  Jackson County Preschool in January of 2019.  They are a great asset to our preschool program and community .  Working together, this partnership allows benefits to our students that could not exist otherwise.  One of those such benefits is the addition of new preschool sized classroom furniture and other materials to all of our preschool classrooms, located at McKee, Sand Gap, and Tyner Elementary.  Early childhood classrooms play a pivotal role in the growth and development of the children within them.  Effective early childhood classrooms provide an engaging environment for children by offering opportunities for individualized teaching and learning, plenty of interesting, accessible materials, and enhanced child participation in play and learning.  By providing this type of learning environment to preschool students and their families, we begin to promote their early learning skills while instilling a sense of independence and success as they grow, develop, and learn during this early stage of childhood development.

Thank you CAC and Preschool Staff for all you do for our children!

Jackson County High School Report Card

JCHS received a 4 star ranking based on the state's 2018-19 accountability system, which is awesome!!!!  The school is ranked 38th out of the 226 high schools in Kentucky.  In the 13th region, which has a total of 17 high schools, JCHS ranked 3rd.  We are very proud of the hard work that our students and staff put forth to accomplish this achievement and we will continue to strive for improvement in all areas.  Looking at the preliminary results, our transition readiness score may be in the top 10 of the state again.  Based on this great news, on Wednesday, October 2nd, there will be a school-wide celebration that includes inflatables, movies and food.  A special thank you goes out to all of "General Nation" and it is a great day to be a General!!!!!!!!!!!


Attention Parents/Guardians

September 19, 2019


Dear Parent/Guardian:


Working in partnership with parents to provide open communication and to ensure the safety of our students and staff, I wanted to inform you of a situation that occurred at the Jackson County High School today.  A student found a threatening message on a bathroom stall and reported it to a school administrator.  After an in-depth administrative investigation that included the school’s resource officer, a student confessed and the appropriate disciplinary measures were taken.  At no time were students or staff at risk.  As always,the welfare and safety of our students and staff is our top priority.  If you have any questions or concerns, you can call Brian Harris at (606) 287-7155 or email him at brian.harris@jackson.kyschools.us.

Enrollment packets for the 2019-2020 JCHS school year:

Enrollment packets for the 2019-2020 JCHS school year:

There are 3 different packets depending the grade you are entering. 

  • New Student Packet:  This is for any student that has never been in Jackson County Public Schools, or hasn’t been enrolled in JCPS in the last 2-3 years.
  • Freshmen Packet:  This is for any incoming freshmen that attended JCMS last year.
  • Upperclassmen Packet:  This is for any returning JCHS student that will be enrolled in grades 10-12 this coming school year.

We have tried to cut down the number of pages parents/guardians will need to fill out this year.  There is a cover sheet that explains what each form is for.  We cannot accept forms that are from other schools in the district.  Our forms are specifically for Jackson County High School students.
