The Jackson City Schools provide a number of technology opportunities for its students and staff.

With over 2000 devices spread across our five educational buildings, there is a wide variety of devices that can be used within the district, including Chromebooks, PCs, laptops, and iPads.

Parents and students both are given access to the district Progress Book gradebook so that they can monitor their progress in real time.

In grades Pre-K through 8, we are using products such as Study Island, Accelerated Reader, Accelerated MathBrainPop and others to help enhance education via technology.  The Jackson Middle School also uses Scholastic Read 180 for reading intervention.

At Jackson High School we offer courses in Web Design & Development, Computer Applications & Exploration (including Microsoft Office 2013, Photoshop Elements, and other web based applications), Computerized Accounting, Office Technology, Computer Networking,  AutoCAD LT, and a yearbook class that makes use of computer graphics.  Each department at JHS takes full advantage of the technology at hand by using and/or developing assistive applications that student can access via the building’s PCs, netbooks and iPads. 

We have also added a multimedia course at JHS that enables students to learn about creating, editing, and presenting various forms of digital media.

All buildings have WiFi connectivity throughout, and we are now working with students and staff to begin a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) program.

If you have any questions about the technology that’s in use here at Jackson, please feel free to contact Steve Marion or Riley McLaughlin at 740-286-7812, or you can e-mail them at steve@jcs.k12.oh.us or rmclaughlin@jcs.k12.oh.us.
