JICHS will continue to be a 1:1 Chromebook school this year, and every student will be able to check out and use a school-issued device.

Students may bring the signed agreement to school on the first day to check out a Chromebook.
All required and supplemental fees may be paid with a debit/credit card, or Echeck on RevTrak. Cash payments, money orders and physical checks will not be accepted at the school.
