Staff Available Now to Assist with Registration at all Schools

 

JACKSON, Tenn. – JMCSS staff are back at work and getting ready for the start of the 2019-2020 school year, which will begin in less than two weeks. Office staff will be available to assist with registration between 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. beginning tomorrow, Wednesday, July 25th. 

 

Please note that due to construction in the building at East Elementary, registration for East will occur in one of the portables on their campus. 

 

Any student who is new to the district or who moved to a new school zone over the summer must register at his or her new school before the first day of class on August 5th. 

 

There are two parts to the registration process: 

 

 1. Complete the registration forms online. 

  • Visit www.jmcss.org/register 
  • Click on “New Students” and follow the directions on the page. 
  • If you do not have a computer or internet access, there are computers available at your child’s school. 

 

2. Submit all required documents in person at your child’s school office. The office staff can make copies and the originals will be returned to you. 

  • All new students must submit the following: 1. Birth certificate 
    1. Three (3) proofs of residence 
    2. Social security card (requested if available) 
    3. Updated shot record on the Tennessee form 
    4. Proof of current physical 
    5. Parent or guardian’s state-issued ID 
  • All Pre-K students must submit the above documents plus the following: 1. Household income verification (most recent check stub, tax return, public assistance case or SSI pay stub) 

 

All returning students, who were enrolled in a JMCSS school during the last year, should have completed registration before leaving school for summer break. If you did not complete that registration process, it is still available through the PowerSchool Parent site and must be completed prior to the first day of school. If you need assistance with this process, the office staff at your student’s school can help.
