    eChalk Parent Accounts

    Parents of elementary school students can register for an eChalk Parent Account at http:/jes.kcsdschools.com/parents/register.  (All parents must create a new account for the 2013-14 School Year.)

    Middle & high school students require a District ID number, which you will receive in a letter from the school that will be sent home soon.  This information will allow parents to access the student's homework schedule and view class pages directly.

    Additional information on eChalk Parent Accounts - including a video walk-through - are available on the district website at www.kershaw.k12.sc.us/district/instruction/echalk.

    We want your opinion!

    We would like all students and parents to participate in our school survey to determine how you feel about students and teachers at Jackson School wearing uniforms. Please click here to complete the survey! Thank you for your help!
