Cobb County High School Magnet Applications

Magnet Applications are due by the end of the day (11:59 PM) on Monday, December 2nd. This is the only opportunity to apply for the academic magnet programs, and we would encourage every student to complete and submit the application if he or she has any potential interest in the programs.

The student “essay” response in the application does not need to be a complete essay (five paragraphs). We generally recommend that students write a few paragraphs (roughly three) to communicate an idea and demonstrate their ability to write well.

The teacher recommendation deadline is January 15th.

Perkins V Draft State Plan Public Response Needed

Perkins V legislation was reauthorized by the United States Congress in July 2018. Perkins V legislation serves to provide funding for our CTAE programs.

In order to participate in this funding source, each state must submit a Perkins V State plan. One part of the proposed State plan is our State Determined Levels of Performance. The Georgia Department of Education CTAE division has completed a Draft Perkins V plan, which includes the State Determined Levels of Performance for the Core Indicators of Performance.

Please use the link below to read through the proposed indicators and provide feedback.

The Georgia Department of Education needs input from all, if we are going to provide indicators that truly inform our work and inform the community as to the extent of training our CTAE students receive.

The deadline for public feedback is December 15.



Your help is greatly appreciated!

The shorts will be required wear for PE. Even if your child does not end up having PE this year, we encourage each student to purchase at least one pair of shorts since these will be the only “gym shorts” allowed for school events such as the Color Battle, Field Day, the Carnival, etc......

The shorts will be delivered to student in his/her homeroom class after purchase.

School Safety Info. for all CCSD Stakeholders

The Cobb Shield web site, www.cobbshield.com is now up and running: answer your school safety questions, view the video of CCSD’s recent School Safety Town Hall Meeting, download a detailed flyer on CCSD’s many school safety initiatives (attached), and view an AlertPoint informational video.

Attendance, Tardies, Arrival and Dismissal!

Did you know that research shows there is a direct correlation between school attendance and academic performance? Absence from school is often the greatest single cause of poor performance. Attendance is one indicator for the state scoring model for all schools called the CCRPI (College and Career Readiness Performance Index). For every student who has six (6) or more absences, our score decreases. This includes students who are absent more than ½ a school day. Now, what can you do? Of course, we want your sick child to stay at home in order to get better, but when possible, please try to make appointments to where your child is at school at least ½ of the school day. Let’s work as a team to make LMMS stay #1 in the district.

Please read the attendance policy.
