Using CCSD ID Badge for Athletic Event Entry There has been
some confusion concerning admittance to regular season Cobb
County High School athletic events using your employee ID
badge. Please forward this information to those who may not
receive this publication. The CCSD employee ID badge admits the
badge holder only. It is a local school decision, and should not
be an expectation, whether to admit more than the badge holder.
For specific information regarding badges and passes, please see
the Cobb County ID Badge section of the Athletics Handbook which
can be found at the following link: http://support.cobbk12.org/Athletics/
Please feel free to contact Pam Orvino in the Athletic office at 678-331-1071 should
you have any questions.

‘We believe in you. We know your future has no limits.”
