Congratulations to the March students of the month for middle school and high school! These students were nominated by their teachers as they portray positive behavior in the classroom, have a C or higher in every class, and have no focus room visits.
Anatomy and physiology students completed a trial and error lab on the nervous system using puzzles, a timer, a data analysis sheet, and some friendly peer competition.

Dear Vandercook Lake Staff and Families, On May 2, 2023, Jackson County Intermediate School District will have a question on the ballot regarding the Special Education Millage Renewal. In the Jackson County ISD service area, which includes our school district, voters will decide whether to renew the 1.5408-mill property tax millage that voters last approved in 2017. No new taxes are being proposed. This proposal sustains the current millage and funding through 2028. This renewal would cost homeowners with a market value of $100,000 or a taxable value of $50,000, $77.04 per year or $6.42 per month. If approved, this renewal would generate approximately $8,800,000 for the 2023-24 school year, allowing the Jackson County ISD to reimburse public school districts and local public school academies for their unreimbursed, but mandated special education costs. During the 2022-23 school year, this millage brought $376,207 to Vandercook Lake Public Schools. Without this reimbursement, our district would be tasked with generating that funding individually, which would have an impact on current programs and resources that are available through our general fund, impacting ALL students. Every registered voter who lives in our school district, whether a property owner, or not, is eligible to vote. For more information, to review frequently asked questions or view the ballot language, please visit the Jackson County ISD website at www.jcisd.org. Thank you.
The 8th grade class will be taking a field trip on Thursday, March 9th. Please see below for details.
