JPS heading back to class and with some big changes

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

JPS students are returning to class today and the new school year is set to bring some big changes for parents and students.


This year, 9th graders in all seven high schools will enter freshmen academies.

The purpose is to help freshmen during their transition in high school and ultimately increase the districts graduation rate. 

Parents who have questions or need assistance getting children into school on the first couple of days, may call the Superintendent's First Day Hotline at 601-960-2781 from 7 am - 5:00 pm on Monday and Tuesday.
