Jasper County Community Unit School District No. 1
2017-2018 Registration Information
Jasper County School District will be offering student registration for the 2017-2018 school year completely online.
The online registration “window” will be open from July 17 to 31, 2017. You will be able to register your students by going to TeacherEase and entering your username and password. Once online registration opens, click on the Online Registration link and complete each form. Credit Card payments can also be made online. Additional instructions will be provided during the online registration process. For the best online registration experience, we recommend using a desktop or laptop computer instead of a smartphone or tablet.
If you have forgotten your username and/or password, please contact your student’s school. We recognize that some parents may not have computer access or may require assistance with registration. In these cases, there will be time available at the individual schools (Ste. Marie Elementary will be at Newton Elementary) where computers and staff assistance will be available:
Tuesday, July 25th from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Physical examinations and immunizations are required for all students entering Pre-K, kindergarten, sixth grade and ninth grade prior to school beginning for the 2017-2018 school year. Students will be excluded from school if they do not provide proof of having received their vaccines. Dental exams are due by May 15, 2018.
Below are the requirements for each of these grades: Complete requirements are available on TeacherEase online registration.
Pre-K (new students only)
Sports physicals are not acceptable as the school physical. However, the school physical will be accepted for the sports physical. Any student new to the district must also provide physical examination and immunization records. Physical exam forms and updated immunization records must be turned in or mailed by August 16, 2017 or parent must show proof of appointment.
School calendar information is also available online.
A birth certificate is required for all Pre-K students, Kindergarten students, and all transfer students. When applying for free or reduced price meals, you must know the gross monthly earnings for each household member. If you received a letter this year stating your household was automatically approved for free meals, you do NOT fill out the application for free or reduced meals, otherwise, applications must be filled out yearly to receive these benefits. Also, please be prepared to provide home, work, and emergency phone numbers. If you do not have a phone, you must provide a phone number that will allow the school to contact you in the event of an emergency.
