AGENDA

Georgia Milestones Re-Test Information

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.

2018-2019 School Calendar
Decatur County Canceled, Wednesday January 17th

Out of an abundance of caution for the safety of our students, all schools in Decatur County will be canceled tomorrow, Wednesday January 17th, for students and staff due to the possibility for icy and unsafe road conditions during the morning hours. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause but the weather conditions tomorrow are too questionable at this time to jeopardize the safety of our students or our staff. 

We will be back to our normal schedule Thursday January 18th.

Agenda

Decatur County Schools Closed Monday 11th & Tuesday 12th

Parents and Community Members,

The uncertainty of the future track of Hurricane Irma and its potential impact on our area has led us to cancel school for all Decatur County Schools on Monday, September 11th and Tuesday, September 12th. We are hopeful that our area sees very little impact but the uncertainty remains too high to take any chances with the safety of our students and staff. Schools will reopen on Wednesday, September 13th unless developments change at which time we will update you all.  Thank you and be safe.

Sincerely,

 

Tim Cochran

Superintendent Decatur County Schools

Decatur County Board of Education

The Decatur County School system offers the following career and technical education programs for all students regardless of race, color, national origin, including those with limited English proficiency, sex or disability in grades 9-12.

Georgia Parent Survey

Georgia Parent Survey

The Georgia Parent Survey is also modeled after the student survey and contains 24 questions. Parents may complete the survey using their personal computer, smartphone or tablet. For parents that do not have access to the Internet, school administrators should consider scheduling dates and times to allow parents to complete the Georgia Parent Survey at school. All parents should be encouraged to participate in the Georgia Parent Survey because the data will be used as part of the calculation of the School Climate Star Rating. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. The Georgia Parent Survey is also available in Spanish. Parents may select the Spanish version within the survey. Results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online. The Georgia Parent Survey link is posted below.
