Important Parent Notification Regarding ActiveParent Maintenance

February 7, 2019

Building Stronger Schools Together - Jackson Public Schools

The hosting provider for Jackson Public Schools' student information system will be undergoing maintenance for its ActiveParent Portal on March 1, 2019. Therefore, this notification is to inform our parents that this process will deactivate any ActiveParent accounts that have not been in use within the last 30 days prior to the March 1 maintenance date. Special precautions have been made to safeguard the accounts of currently enrolled seniors from deactivation. However, it is important for all parents/legal guardians to know that if your ActiveParent account is deactivated, you can get a new account by completing an ActiveParent Request Form (PDF). This form can be downloaded from the District website, or it can be acquired at your child's school. To download the form, please click on this link and follow the instructions provided.

Instructions for Requesting an ActiveParent Account

To get a new ActiveParent account, the parent/legal guardian should do the following:

  1. If the account has been deactivated, complete the ActiveParent Request Form (PDF) as a New User.
  2. Make sure your contact number and email address are active.
  3. Make a clear copy of your valid state ID.
