Jackson’s staff and students use technology as a tool to learn the core subjects with creativity and innovation. Classrooms are equipped with SMARTboards, projectors, 1-to-1 Chromebooks for students in grades 2-5, and 1-to-1 iPads for students in grades K-1. All of these devices are used for differentiation and motivation and most importantly lead to higher levels of engagement.
Jackson School has a robust Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO), which organizes a variety of events including monthly social activities for students and their families. The highlight and kick-off to the school year is the annual Brat Fry in September. This is the school’s major fundraiser and is guaranteed to be a great time for all ages.
Jackson is located on a large campus with an outdoor environmental lab and fitness areas for student and community use. The abundant green space includes a wildflower area, walking trail, disc golf course, and classroom gardens. The school cafeteria is home to a very special Magic Tree House reading center. Volunteers built the Magic Tree House from donations to encourage students to take time to enjoy books. The Magic Tree house is used by families and groups to inspire a love of reading.

Assessment is used to monitor student progress. In the classrooms, teachers provide a variety of experiences that will help students practice the skills necessary to help them learn and apply their knowledge in order to demonstrate their understanding.
There are a variety of assessments that are used in the district in order to monitor the progress of individual students, track student growth, and evaluate the success of the school and district. Some of these assessments are required by the state, others are part of district efforts to monitor and evaluate progress.
In all cases, assessment results are used by teachers, schools and the district as part of an established protocol of continuous improvement. Individual student needs are recognized and evaluated. Student growth is compared to expected growth and districtwide growth is measured to evaluate successes and plan for the future.
