Welcome to CONNECTIONS at Jackson High School!
Jackson High School has embarked on a student advisory program school-wide. Students have been placed in CONNECTIONS classes with approximately 20 grade level peers, and have been assigned to a CONNECTIONS coach. Each student will have the opportunity to work with their CONNECTIONS group and coach for the duration of their high school career. CONNECTIONS will occur every Wednesday from 10:05-10:35, and the time will be spent focusing on academic goals, career exploration, digital citizenship, social skills, and more. The district is also implementing activities from Sandy Hook Promise as well as other programs designed to establish solid student-staff relationships.
The two main goals of CONNECTIONS at Jackson High School are:
To build a strong, small community among students and their staff mentor that promotes supportive relationships which results in a positive school culture and develops the awareness within students that they have an adult advocate here at Jackson High School.
To provide academic advising and coaching that prepares students for their transition into college and/or their chosen career pathway.
Our hope is that CONNECTIONS will provide every student with a trusted adult, and that each student will leave Jackson High School with skills that will help them succeed well beyond their high school years.
