Information for Vo-Tech and MATES, PAA, and ALP Students when Vo-Tech is Open but the Jackson School District is Closed.

TRANSPORTATION TO OUT-OF-DISTRICT SCHOOLS:

This information below applies only to Vo-Tech academies and Vo-Tech programs and special education out-of-district schools that are open when the district is closed due to NON-WEATHER-RELATED Reasons. If the district is closed due to WEATHER, there is no transportation to any schools.

  • Transportation to out-of-district special education schools will continue as normal. Please be at your bus stop at your normal time unless you hear otherwise from your out-of-district school.
  • High School students who attend the Vo-Tech half-day programs and the Vo-Tech academies (MATESPAA, ALPS) will be transported to and from those schools in accordance with our procedures below (this is similar to the procedure on the first day of Vo-Tech earlier this year).
