Op-Ed by Superintendent Richard Woods

In October, we’ll release student scores for the first year of the Georgia Milestones Assessment System -- and I want to caution that scores will likely reflect a smaller percentage of students who are proficient than we have seen in previous years. 

Attention Trojans!!! **Updated Drawings**

The second community meeting concerning state options available to the school system concerning facilities at GLHS was held July 28 at the GLHS Gym.  Below you will find informational handouts presented at the meeting, as well as, drafts of a new school IF new construction is the option chosen. The school would be longer, but the current architectural, exterior design has been maintained.  Please note the interior floor plan is currently under revision to include many suggestions from local volunteers and alumni who reviewed the plans.  A third and final community meeting will be held in September. A decision must be made in October.  We appreciate your interest, attendance, time and input into this very important matter. Please click "Read More" for additional info, architectural drawings, and a draft floorplan.

GaDOE Seeks Feedback on Science, Social Studies Standards

August 12, 2015The Georgia Department of Education is seeking public feedback as it conducts a review of the Science and Social Studies K-12 standards. After this process is complete, the new standards will be implemented in the 2017-18 school year.?

Click here to provide input on the current standards. This is a user-friendly, brief survey for professionals, parents and families, community members, students, and others.


“Educators have already given us valuable feedback on the current standards, and we wanted to make sure the public had a chance to weigh in as well,” State School Superintendent Richard Woods said. “I’m committed to ensuring guaranteed, viable standards – standards that are appropriate and fully vetted. That can’t be done without input from all education stakeholders.”


Responses to this survey will be added to the educator responses and will be considered when Working Committees draft the revised standards.


The deadline to submit responses is September 15 at midnight EST.
