Welcome to the 2017-2018 School Year!


It is always a great day to be a Viking, and we are working to make this the best year yet! The staff at Jackson Public Schools has been hard at work this summer preparing for the upcoming year in order to create more opportunities for our students, more experiences to enrich their learning, and taking care of our facilities to make sure the learning environment supports our new mission and vision.


Mission:  We will bring our community together to create a culture of academic excellence and workforce readiness.   


Vision:  We envision a community where all students become lifelong learners.


What does this mean for our Viking families? More specifically, what does this mean for you and your student? Simply put, we are committed to helping your child find their way from the classroom into a career that inspires them. This path may go through college, into the skilled trades where relationships with our business partners lead to apprenticeships, or into the military to serve our nation.


We are creating several different product lines to create a flexible education system, where every child reads by third grade, where children get early exposure to the soft skills necessary to enter the workforce, and where we take the classroom learning and turn it into a community experience. We are working to take away the hurdles, to knock down the barriers of college expense, so that all children pursue learning beyond our walls. We are partnering with local businesses, local colleges, and individual supporters to give back to the community and teach the values of community service, to build not just a better Jackson Public Schools, but a better Jackson!
