Weather Make Up Plan
The Georgia State Board of Education granted a waiver for local school systems to forgive days missed due to recent inclement weather. Jackson County Schools will continue with regularly scheduled school days as reflected on the calendar approved by the BOE on Monday, February 10th. As previously communicated, students will attend school on March 14th and May 22nd. However, Jackson County Schools will not add May 23rd, nor will any potential change to start and end times be implemented. We are committed to providing focused instruction to ensure student preparedness for upcoming assessments and advancement in their educational careers. Thank you for your patience as we are committed to our students, families, and their success!
