Jackling Elementary school was named after Daniel C. Jackling (August 14, 1869 – March 13, 1956). He was an American mining and metallurgical engineer who pioneered the exploitation of low-grade copper ores at the Bingham Copper Mine, Utah.
Daniel Jackling was educated in mining and metallurgy at the Missouri School of Mines in Rolla, Missouri, now known as Missouri University of Science and Technology. In 1898, Jackling and Robert C. Gemmell made a detailed examination of the Bingham Canyon copper property. They recommended open pit mining, using steam shovels to load railroad cars, a novel idea at the time. In 1903, Jackling organized the Utah Copper Company to put his plan into action. The mine proved to be profitable, and open-pit mining of low-grade copper deposits came to dominate the industry by mid-century.
Jackling went on to a very successful and lucrative career as a manager and executive for many copper companies, including the Utah Copper Company, in the Western U.S. He was honored with numerous professional awards, including the Washington Award from the Western Society of Engineers for pioneering in large-scale mining and treatment of low-grade copper ores, releasing vast resources from formerly worthless deposits.
His collected papers were given to the Stanford University Library.
The Daniel C. Jackling Award, established in 1953, is presented annually by the Society for Mining, Metallurgy, and Exploration for significant contributions to technical progress in mining, geology, and geophysics.

Jackling Elementary serves approximately 500 students from kindergarten through sixth grade.
Computers and technology
Jackling Elementary prides itself on using technology to improve student learning. Jackling takes part in the district eMINTS program, which provides one computer for every two students and technology enhanced instructional training for eMINTS teachers. All of our classrooms in 3rd through 6th grade are eMINTS classes. Also, every classroom, Kindergarten through 6th grade is interactive with mounted LCD projectors, audio enhancement, and either an interactive whiteboard or interactive tablet. We currently have one classroom set of iPod touches and 3 sets of student response systems. We also have two fully-equipped student computer labs and house a district computer lab on the school site.
Jackling Elementary School has a strong and supportive PTA. We encourage all parents to get involved their child’s education by reinforcing what is taught at school, helping with homework, and attending our fun family and community activities.
Most students will be promoted from Jackling to Hunter Jr. High. Those students living south of 4100 S. will be promoted to Kennedy Jr. High. All students will then attend Hunter High School.
