IMPORTANT PARENT INFORMATION

You Need ParentVUE!  As Cobb County adapts to our changing times, some of our procedures are changing as well.

Parents will now be responsible for logging in and updating all their own personal information.  You will also need a ParentVUE account to register siblings for the upcoming school year.  All of your CCSD students will be included on one account.

If you do not have access to ParentVUE or have forgotten your login, please email kathy.parks@cobbk12.org or lori.edwards@cobbk12.org and they will be happy to get you set up with your account.

Here comes the Bus App Is Now Available!!!

The Cobb Schools Transportation Department transports more than 70,000 students via about 1,000 school buses every day. Now every parent will know exactly where the specific bus carrying their child is at on the route to and from school.  In addition to giving scheduled and actual arrival times for home and school, the app will also provide push and email notifications when the bus is near. So, thanks to the bus app, Cobb parents will know when the bus enters their neighborhood. You can customize when you want to receive the alert from 250 yards to 2 miles away.

To ease stress in the mornings and afternoons, download the bus app in the Apple App Store or on Google Play, or visit herecomesthebus.com.  You must have a student enrolled in a CCSD school to use the service. Your account is secure and password protected.  Use CCSD's school code of 87881 during sign up.

Our gifted teachers also offer talent development services to our students in non-AC courses for additional opportunities to think critically and creatively.
