Attention Parents and Students,
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.

WJIS Classroom Next and Best Practices
Are our classrooms designed for student success? This is the question our teachers asked themselves this summer as we prepared for the upcoming school year.
If we take a step back in time, we see that not much has changed in the design of classrooms over the past 100 years. So we asked ourselves, what are we doing to provide the best possible learning experiences for our students?
We are creating an environment where students are setting goals and monitoring their own progress. Student work and achievements are displayed and celebrated. Students are engaged as active participants in their learning and our teachers are moving from a stand and deliver format to a 21st century model of learning facilitator. We recognize that our students are digital natives and we are working to provide opportunities for them to plug in and connect to the world around them.
