workshop pays off for Cobb students
This time last year, Pebblebrook High senior Jennifer Garcia
had no idea what was involved in applying to college. But the
Mableton student knew one thing: She wanted to go.
“Then my friends told me about this after-school program that
met every Tuesday and talked about how to prepare for college
and what you need to do to apply,” she said. “I went in the fall
and learned something I didn’t know on the very first day: I
needed to take the SAT and the ACT. I signed up for them right

HB91 PETITION PROCESS for Formerly Enrolled Students
Implications for currently enrolled students:
Assessments required for graduation
- The GAA is still required for students on
the alternative track to graduate at this time because it was
not addressed in the law.
- According to state law enacted on March
30, 2015, currently enrolled students do not have to pass the
GHSGT, GHSWT, or EOC/EOCTs to graduate.
- Currently enrolled students are still
required to take the EOCs for any EOC course in which they are
- “Currently Enrolled Students” includes ALL enrolled students including 5th/6th
- Students who left school in December having fulfilled all graduation
requirements except for assessment requirements will be treated
as currently enrolled students
Implications for former, non-enrolled students:
Petition Process is in development
- A petition form will be placed on the CCSD website in the near future. Former
students must meet ALL graduation requirements other than the assessment requirement to receive a diploma.
Please direct any inquiries to Risa Fischer, Secretary in Teaching and Learning at (770) 426-3316.
Students should wear or have their IDs on them at all times.
We will order a limited number of lanyards that we can make
available to students. For safety reasons, we need to be
able to identify Pebblebrook students especially since we have
an open campus. Reminding your child of this requirement
will assist us.

FIRE LANE CHANGES FOR SCHOOLS
The Cobb County Fire Lane Ordinance was amended to include a provision for student pick-up at schools. Per
the Fire Marshall's Office, no one is allowed to park in a Fire Lane, whether there is a driver in
the vehicle or not, at any time other than the following:
- 30 minutes prior to the end of the school day and 30 minutes after the end of the school day (this does not
include the After School Program nor any other activity at the school)
- Passengers actively loading or unloading during the day (this would cover students unloading in the morning at the
beginning of the school day)
- Stopping or parking a vehicle in a fire lane at any other time is prohibited, unless passengers are actively loading or
- Enforcement of this new provision will begin on April 9, 2012. Fire lanes can be identified by “No Parking Fire Lane”
signage and/or curbing that is red in color. Fire lane violations currently result in a fine of $135.00.
Should you have questions or concerns, please contact the Department of Public Safety (678) 594-8620.
