Jackson Township Emergency Alert System

The school district is pleased to help the Jackson Township Police Department get the word out about the township's emergency alert system. This system allows residents to receive phone and e-mail alerts about emergencies and other important community news (e.g. severe weather, road closures, evacuations).

To sign up, click on the image below and follow the instructions on the township's site.
NOTE: This is the system used by township police and personnel - it is different from the automated system used by the school district.

Do You Have Questions or Concerns That You Would Like to Discuss with the Board of Education?

Dr. Cheryl Simone
Interim Superintendent of Schools

As I dive in head-first to my new role as Interim Superintendent of the Jackson School District, I find myself excited to be a part of this formidable district. I am thankful to all those who have already made me feel so welcome and I am grateful to the Board of Education for allowing me the opportunity to serve the students of Jackson.

After spending my first week getting to know our administrative team and exploring how the district works, I am eager to get into the classrooms to see how the district’s goals and procedures are experienced by our staff and our students. Enjoying classroom lessons along with students, talking both formally and informally to teachers in a comfortable setting, discussing issues directly with staff – these are all opportunities to truly understand the true pulse of a school district.

Although I am new to the Jackson School District I am not new to the world of education. I have 11 years of experience as a superintendent and a lifetime of experience as a teacher, supervisor and administrator. I am passionate about education and about finding ways to be both efficient and effective. My goal during my time here is to use my experience – along with a fresh eye – to support and advise the district and Board of Education in ways that will benefit students.

As we get through the last months of the school year together, I invite our staff and parents to let me know if there is something you want me to know, to see or to experience.  A successful school district is a true partnership, and I look forward to collaborating with you!
