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.


New Grading System is in effect
for 2015-2016

The district has made several changes at the Middle School level to better maintain the integrity of a student's performance.

What's New:
How we calculate grades
What is a "passing'' grade
Criteria for Honor Roll and High Honor Roll
