Decatur County Schools is a Strategic Waiver System, which allows our system to waive specific state board rules. In our current strategic waiver, we chose to waive O.G.C.A 20-2-283 & 20-2-284. This waiver allows us as a system not to retest students for the 2017-2018 school year. The wavier also allows us to be able to use other vital information from your child’s entire school year and not only state assessment scores in the promotion and retention policy for the 2017-2018 school year.

We will be collecting money for our Leukemia Survivor "Hero". Please help your child assemble the collection box sent home, inform family, friends, and neighbors, and help support cancer research. You can also donate and share using our school link for the event:
Thank you for your help and participation!
