What if I have more than one student entering the Jackson-Madison County School District? Do I need to do this for each child?
Yes, you will have to submit the registration form once per each child, because you will need to provide information that is specific to each student. We recommend that you submit one New Student Registration and then start another as this will allow you to "snap over" shared family information.
