IMPORTANT FLU INFORMATION
Inclement Weather Make-Up Plan Adopted
Following the results of a stakeholder survey regarding student instructional time lost to inclement weather, the Coweta County School System will not use make-up days scheduled over the February winter break.
Instead, schools will address lost instructional time by adjusting and prioritizing instruction, including the use of digital instructional opportunities, as necessary. The school system will also delay the start of Milestones testing (grades 3-8) by three days for elementary and middle schools to allow for more student instruction before testing. High school End-of-Course assessments are already scheduled as late as possible within this year’s testing calendar.
March 9 (a scheduled teacher workday) has been set aside as a potential make-up day if students miss additional days due to inclement weather in the remaining weeks of winter.
After considering several options and their impacts on attendance, instruction, extracurricular schedules and transportation schedules, system officials sought public input on two options for making up lost instructional time. 9,906 parents, students and employees participated in a school system survey, held January 23-25, regarding inclement weather make-up days. 86 percent of respondents indicated that they would prefer the course of action described above.
The Coweta County School System has a flexibility contract with the state called a Strategic Waiver School System (SWSS) contract. Flexibility allowed under the contract means that the system is not required by law or state board rule to make up days that are missed. Rather, it is up to the local school system to decide how to address missed instructional time.
Congratulations Broncos on a 2017
CCRPI score of
The CCRPI is Georgia's statewide accountability system, implemented in 2012 to replace No Child Left Behind's Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) measurement, after the U.S. Department of Education granted Georgia's waiver from NCLB. It measures schools and school districts on a 100-point scale based on multiple indicators of performance.

Notice to Parents of Curriculum Transparency
We are looking forward to an exciting year of learning and success, especially in regards to content and skill development that our students will experience in our classrooms this year. A list of Coweta County School System’s adopted instructional resources is accessible on our school system website (www.cowetaschools.net) and on each school’s website. Access to print versions is available upon request. Coweta County School System will continue to utilize an approval process that involves administrators, teachers and parents/community members.
Student/Parent Chromebook Handbook (digital form)
Student/Parent Chromebook Handbook (Hard Copy)
Look under our "ChromeBook Resources" tab on our website for more google tips and additional resources.
Third through fifth grade students are strongly encouraged to purchase a Chromebook cover for the Dell 3120 Chromebook. Students may not decorate their actual Chromebook, however, they can decorate their cover. Decorating and personalizing their cover will make it easy for teachers and students to identify their own device, as well as protect it. Parents may also want to think about getting something big enough to hold the charger as well.
We have a few shirts remaining in the front office. Come see what is left and pick one up before they are gone!
