Media Consent Forms

Consent forms are generally handed out during the first week of school. Consent forms for both students are available for download below. Return the signed form to your child's school.
This form is completed every school year during QuickStart.
Jones College Prep (JCP) and Chicago Public Schools (CPS) periodically use phone messaging to send information regarding school or district events, updates or initiatives that benefit your student, including report card distribution, field trips, community events, parent-teacher conferences, announcements, sport team updates, and more.
