Online registration is underway for the 2020-2021 school year for returning JPS students.

The Mississippi Department of Education has recently waived the two proofs of residency requirement for families of returning students with no address change. As you register, you will be able to select the "No Address Change" option.

New students to the District or returning students whose addresses have changed will still be required to prove residency. The enrolling parent/legal guardian's name and current physical address must appear on the two proofs of residency.  Post office boxes are not acceptable.  Utility bills such as light, gas, and water/sewer must be within 30 days. Additional information about proof of residency can be found on the School Registration page.

Online registration for returning students must be completed using the JPS ActiveParent Portal. Directions for using the ActiveParent Portal for returning students can be found on the School Registration Page.
