The Jackson Library is a busy place. Teachers, students, EAs, and Foster Grandparents all use our library as a place for learning. We have a large collection of materials to support recreational reading and research. Students visit the library each week with their class for a book exchange, mini-lesson, or sometimes both. Mrs. Miesfeld welcomes suggestions for book purchases! If there is a book you think we should have, please let her know.
Student use of the internet at school is governed by the Acceptable Internet Use and Safety Policy 7450. This policy can be found within the Sheboygan Area School District policies.
Parents must give permission for their child to use the internet as a learning resource while at school. Permission is given by completing form 7540 - Elementary School Student Agreement and Permission Form for Internet Access. This form can also be found within the Sheboygan Area School District policies under Forms. This form is typically provided as part of the registration process.
If you have questions about your child's internet use while at school, please contact the school office.
The Sheboygan Area School District has implemented a 1-to-2 iPad Mini program in grades K-2, and a 1-to-2 Chromebook program in grades 3-5. At Jackson School, all classrooms are equipped with a data projector, document camera, and SMARTBoard.
Beyond the physical devices, students at Jackson School have access to a variety of resources to further their education. Books, periodicals, and video/DVD resources are available through the school library. Electronic resources, such as an online library catalog and several research databases, are also available to students at school or home with any Internet-connected device. Instruction on how to use these resources is available from the Library Media Specialist.
