Raise Your Hand for Students!

For over twenty years Parents for Public Schools Jackson has brought schools and communities together to improve public education in our city. Whether you’re a parent, teacher, or community member, we believe everyone has something to offer to better the lives of our Jackson Public School children.

Now more than ever, we need our community to come together and stand up to support our children. That’s why we’re asking you to Raise Your Hand for Students by donating to PPSJ! Your gift will help PPSJ improve our programs:
