This week we plan to have a full week of school! Gear up for an excellent semester! 


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.


Georgia Student Health Survey

The first step to improving school climate is to measure and analyze it with a school climate survey instrument. The Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) is a national leader in the collection and analysis of school climate data through the implementation of its annual Georgia Student Health Survey 2.0 (GSHS 2.0). The GSHS 2.0 is an anonymous, statewide survey instrument developed by many divisions within the GaDOE including the Assessment and Accountability Division and in collaboration with the Georgia Department of Public Health and Georgia State University. The GSHS 2.0 identifies safety and health issues that have a negative impact on student achievement and school climate. Over the next several weeks and months Hillgrove students will begin taking this online survey. All Georgia public schools (grades 3-12) are required to participate in the GSHS 2.0. At least 75% of students in each grade level must participate in the GSHS 2.0 to be eligible for the School Climate Star Rating.
