Jackson’s State Testing Schedule
SCPASS test items measure student performance on the South Carolina Academic Standards. The SCPASS test items are aligned to the standards for each subject and grade level. Standards outline what schools are expected to teach and what students are expected to learn.
SC READY is a statewide assessment that includes tests in English language arts and mathematics. SC READY is administered to all students in grades three through eight. Items on SC READY are aligned with the South Carolina College- and Career-Ready Standards.
Listed below is the State Testing Schedule for Jackson School:
- May 18th - ELA Part 1 (SC Ready)
- May 20th - ELA Part 2 (SC Ready)
- May 25th - Math (SC Ready)
- May 27th - Science (SCPASS) 4th Grade only
Tutorials, and Online Tools Training (OTT)
- The Online Tools Training (OTT) module on the DRC INSIGHT Portal simulates the testing environment and allows students to practice using the testing software and the tools available to students during testing, such as the highlighter, magnifier, and calculator. Schools should review the OTT with students in advance of testing. A DRC INSIGHT account is not needed to access the OTT.
- The OTT and Online Testing Video Tutorials are available on the same devices as the testing platform. Acceptable devices include Windows, Mac, and Chromebook (all using the Chrome browser) as specified in DRC’s current system requirements on the DRC INSIGHT Portal.

Proud to announce the Jackson Bears Jr Beta Club!!
We Are Pleased To Announce That Jackson Elementary Bears will have our very own Jr. Beta Club starting for the 2020-2021 School Year. We are excited about preparing today’s students to be tomorrow’s leaders! Fourth and Fifth Graders are eligible to join based on their current Academic and Character status. After the first nine weeks of school, students will be nominated by their teachers as a candidate considered for membership with the Jr. Beta Club at Jackson. Parent letters will then be sent out for acceptance by the end of November. The one-time membership fee for Jr. Beta Club members are $15.00 per student. Continuation in the Jr. Beta Club will be dependent upon the student’s academic standing and their character. More information will be coming very soon. The Jr. Beta Club Advisor at Jackson will be Ms. Kimm Mack, a Fifth-grade teacher.
