Hillgrove High School is excited to introduce Hawk Hour!

Sign up for Hawk Hour Sessions!

 What is Hawk Hour?

  • Hawk Hour is a one-hour block of time during the school day where students will sign up to attend sessions for intervention, acceleration, or enrichment.

  • Our expectation is that students will use this time wisely and make responsible decisions about which session to attend.

  • Students should review the list of Hawk Hour sessions and choose one session to attend on March 1.

  • Write down the session name, room, and teacher so you can sign up after winter break.

  • On Monday, Feb 26, and Tuesday, Feb 27, students must sign up for a session by writing their name on the sign-up sheet outside teachers' classrooms for the session they want to attend.

  • Students may sign up before school, between classes, during lunch, or after school on Monday and Tuesday only.

  • PLEASE CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE HAWK HOUR SESSIONS THAT WILL BE OFFERED!

2018 - 2019 School Choice

The Cobb County School District is again offering School Choice (HB 251) transfers for the 2018-2019 school year. Individual school capacity information and applications will be available beginning February 5, 2018 on the District website. For more information, please see our 2018-19 School Choice webpage.

Deadline for applying is Wednesday, February 28, 2018.


CCSD Issues New Sibling Transfer Rules

As we prepare to start our HB 251 process, your assistance in communicating some of the changes for this year.  The first major change to our process is the introduction of sibling transfers.  While siblings have had priority in the past, with recent Board action, those students will not be constrained by local school capacity.  However, in order to properly plan, siblings must apply during a designated application window.

 Sibling Transfers - Parents/guardians of a student who has a sibling already enrolled in a District school through an approved transfer may apply for a younger sibling to attend the same school in accordance with District Administrative Rule JBCD-R. This provision attempts to address siblings enrolled in different schools at the same time due to an approved transfer. A sibling is defined as a brother, sister, step-brother, or step-sister living in the same household and who otherwise meets the requirements for enrollment.  The application window for the 2018-2019 school year will be open from January 4, 2018 through January 31, 2018. 

 For more information about this opportunity, and for a link to the online application, visit http://www.cobbk12.org/generalinfo/transfers/schoolchoice.aspx.
