Message from Superintendent Day:

Since the weather is soooo hot and also since we are going to have to park our high school students at Dan McNally Field for the first month or so of school and have them walk over to the high school, I have decided to allow students to wear shorts to school (and staff to wear no ties) until Oct. 7 which will be the last day of school before Fall Break.  I do not intend to surpass our typical practice of wearing shorts til Labor Day next year---just this one time due to the inconvenience of the construction.
Thanks,
Superintendent Day

GLHS Picnic/Tailgate Party


A message from Superintendent Day:

I want to personally thank the citizens of Chickamauga for taking the time to vote on the school bond issue—whether you voted yes or no.  There was a large turnout which indicates the voters were engaged, and I feel confident the outcome of the election is representative of the desire of the majority of the community.  I do feel the appropriate decision has been made to ensure our school system has a long future, and our students have safe, secure facilities that are efficient and effective.  Although there is tremendous emotion associated with this decision, I think it was made by asking, “What is best for the students?”  If we do that, I think we are always doing the right thing.

Tuition Rate for 2016-2017 School Year

The Board of Education has set the tuition rate for the 2016-2017 school year.  Out of city Georgia residents will pay $800 per student with a family maximum of $2,400.  The Board strives to keep the tuition rate in line with what a Chickamauga city resident will pay in property taxes for an average home.  Last summer the millage rate was raised to 14.25 mills so that the school system would not lose state equalization funding, but at that point in time the Board opted not to change the tuition rate a month before school started.  This increase will balance the county tuition rate to approximate the increase in property taxes the city residents received last year.  Hopefully, the advance notice of an increase for the upcoming school year will allow families the opportunity to budget their finances accordingly.  Tuition must be paid in full before students are allowed to attend any classes.
