Cherokee County School District schools continue to score high among their community members for fostering a positive school climate and culture!

The District earned a four-star average on the five-star scale in the Georgia Department of Education’s annual ratings, which measure how a community views the quality of its school’s culture and character; the highest possible rating is five stars.  The rating is based on a survey of students, parents and teachers; student discipline issue rates; and daily attendance.

The Cherokee County School District’s performance has improved, and, for the seventh consecutive year, has exceeded the State’s average College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) accountability system score.

The scores, released today by the Georgia Department of Education, annually calculate student academic achievement and progress.  The School District’s 2018-19 CCRPI average is 83, an increase from 79 the previous year, and exceeding the State average of 76.  Scores at all three levels of CCSD schools also improved from the previous year and surpassed State performance: 86 elementary (77 Georgia); 80 middle (72); 82 high (77). 

We Appreciate Our CCSD School Bus Drivers! bus driver breakfast

October 21-25 is National School Bus Safety Week, and this is also the time we honor our school bus drivers and thank them for the great job they do keeping children safe on the ride to and from school.  Thanks to sponsors Children's Healthcare of Atlanta and the Chick-fil-A restaurants in Cherokee County, CCSD drivers were treated to breakfast on Tuesday and given Chick-fil-A gift cards and a bag of treats.  CCSD schools also held special events or provided tokens of thanks for their drivers.

Hightower said.  “We’re excited to begin #thanksCCSD and honor those among us who go above and beyond.”

September Employee of the Month - Angela Barnes teachers

Congratulations to 4th Grade Teacher Angela Barnes who is the Indian Knoll Elementary School Staff Member of the Month for September. Ms. Barnes recently transformed her room into a football stadium and students worked to complete their English Language Arts Playbook! She divided the day into four quarters- each focused on a different ELA standard. The student engagement was amazing, and the students had an excellent time learning and collaborating. She also recently took initiative to construct an interactive instructional pacing guide for her teammates. Angela always goes the extra mile to make learning interactive. We are so fortunate to have her as a valued part of our Firebird family. She was presented a Woodstock Bucks gift certificate from Partner in Education TPG Keller Williams, and an additional treat from our IKES PTA. Keep up the great work Angela!  We are super proud of your efforts.
