Dear Parents/Guardians:


The Jackson County Public School District encourages you to have your child engaged every school day in the learning options that are offered, whether it be virtual instruction or traditional in-person instruction. Consistent and active participation will help your child to stay on target for the end-of-year mastery of standards and completion of classes that are necessary for your child’s progression to the next grade level.


A decision concerning your child’s placement for the upcoming 2021-2022 school year will be made by a committee of teachers and school-level administrators, prior to the end of this school year. This decision will be based on the data available which will include: student participation, diagnostic results, completing lessons in a timely manner, mastery of class assignments, and other education related criteria.


It is our utmost desire that every student be successful and progress to the next grade level. All decisions will be made in the best interest of your child and will be consistent at each school.


We would like to encourage you to collaborate and communicate with your child’s school to form a partnership in order to help ensure your child’s educational success. If your child is unable to participate in class, please contact the school and/or teachers to let them know about the issue.


Additionally, the Infinite Campus Parent Portal is a very important tool to assist in monitoring your child’s progress. If you do not have access to the Infinite Campus Parent Portal, please contact Rhonda Thompson, District Technology Coordinator, at 606-287-7181.


The Jackson County Public School District strives to keep an open line of communication with parents, guardians, and the community. If you are concerned with your child’s progress, please contact your child’s school for information and guidance.
