Re-Opening of Jackson County Public Schools for the Upcoming 2020-2021 School Year

In an effort to provide open communication with parents, guardians and the community, we would like to share with you our current plans for our re-entry to school for the upcoming school year.

At this time, our current plan is to begin school in a traditional manner with Opening Day for students set for Thursday, August 6, 2020. We hope to follow a traditional model/schedule, but are preparing alternative plans in the event that we receive recommendations and guidance from the Kentucky Department of Education and/or our local Health Department to deviate from our traditional planned schedule.

Our school system participates in weekly webinars and video conferences with the Kentucky Department of Education in order to stay informed of the latest updates and guidance. We will communicate any recommended changes in the quickest manner possible so that you may plan for the upcoming school year.

Again, our current plan is to have a traditional approach and opening to the upcoming school year. We will be in close communication with the Jackson County Health Department, as we have been throughout this process. Always a priority among priorities for Jackson County Public Schools is the safety and well-being of our students and staff.

Last Instructional Day for Students Information

In a video conference with all Superintendents on Monday, April 20, 2020, the Governor recommended school closure for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.  He was very specific in saying in his recommendation that school closure pertains to in-person classes and activities.  We will follow the Governor’s recommendation and extend our school closure for the remainder of this school year.  We will continue to utilize our Non-Traditional Instructional Day (NTI) lessons to meet the educational needs of our students during these unprecedented times.  The last instructional day for students will be Friday, May 15, 2020.


Again, we appreciate everyone’s support and understanding during these challenging times.

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, JCHS Principal


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.
