  • i really do think that jackson city school and the whole city of jackson should have all new teachers, and all new employee. And we really need a new mayor. New principal and vice principal, superintendent. Thats my personal info. and everyone has needs to look at the facts. Think of a new police force wile your at it. think of your kids future.

  • this school is in dire need of disipline experts, the answer to all things outside the norm of child puppets is iss or suspension. ive seen no disiplinary programs in play in the 4 years my kids have attended there. seems to me that sending a child home for haveing a diffrent point of view, or speaking out of turn is inapt to the cause of good disiplinary action.
