JPS school buses provide transportation for students to their schools and homes. Buses also provide round-trip transportation for students attending special programs, such as the Academic and Performing Arts Complex, the three International Baccalaureate schools, and the McWillie Montessori school. Once scholars are registered for school, families should receive students' bus schedules in the mail. Contact the Transportation Department at one of the numbers below to inquire about bus schedules.

Did you know Jackson Public Schools has a Mandatory Dress Code policy? The JPS School Board approved a uniform policy for all JPS elementary and middle school scholars. In general, tops must be navy blue or white and almost any style but not T-shirts or sleeveless and the must be tucked into pants. Bottoms must be tan khaki or navy blue and at least knee-length. Many pants and skirt styles are acceptable but must be fitted at the waist and students must wear a belt with pants.
Although our high school scholars aren't required to wear uniforms, the District's code of conduct and student handbook details expectations for the school attire of our high school scholars. A hard copy handbook will be made available to each student. We encourage parents, guardians, and mentors to talk with students about these expectations.
