Registration for students who live outside Jackson County

Thank you for your interest in Jackson County Schools!

Parents/Guardians of pre-K through 12th-grade students who do not live (and will not be living) within the boundaries of the Jackson County School System but wish to attend our schools must register at the school their children will attend. Students do not have to be present at the time of registration.

Out-of-district students are enrolled in our schools only if space is available after all students zoned for attendance there are enrolled and all students who live in Jackson County but wish to attend a school outside their attendance zone are placed.

Transportation is NOT provided for these students, to or from any location, including Jackson County relatives’ homes, day care centers, etc.

If a child is placed for one school year, there is no guarantee of placement in subsequent years, and application must be made annually.

Additional terms and conditions are listed in JBCB – Non-resident Students and in the non-resident parent and student contracts.

Please bring the following documents for enrollment:

The Jackson County School System does not and will not discriminate
based on race, color, national origin, or immigration status.

McKinney-Vento Education for Homeless Children and Youth

The McKinney-Vento Education for Homeless Children and Youth program is designed to address the problems that homeless children and youth have faced in enrolling, attending, and succeeding in school. Under this program, state educational agencies must ensure that each homeless child and youth has equal access to the same free, appropriate public education, including a public preschool education, as other children and youth.
If the McKinney-Vento Act applies to your family, the school registrar/school social worker will be able to assist with the registration process.If you have further questions regarding registration, please contact the school the student will be attending.
