THE NEW FACE OF PEBBLEBROOK

 

   

 

It’s the start of a new school year — and a New Look —for students of Pebblebrook High School. The class of 2019 kicked off the year with the launch of the Academies of Pebblebrook, a new brand of education that engages every student with a choice, and a path to college or career – or both.

To initiate this exciting shift in academic and community focus, the Cobb County School District is partnered with Usher’s New Look, Inc.  Usher’s New Look is a charity founded by singer and performer, Usher Raymond. Every freshman will participate in his New Look Program, “Powered by Service.”

“We want to inspire a renewed passion for learning, and a sense of possibility and purpose among our students, their teachers, parents and the entire community,” says CCSD Chief Academic Officer, Mary Elizabeth Davis.  “This approach gives every student choices about their future. We’re saying, ‘We believe in you. We know your future has no limits.”

HB91 PETITION PROCESS for Formerly Enrolled Students

Implications for currently enrolled students:

       Assessments required for graduation

·      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.

·        The GAA is still required for students on the alternative track to graduate at this time because it was not addressed in the law.

·        Currently enrolled students are still required to take the EOCs for any EOC course in which they are enrolled.  

       “Currently Enrolled Students” includes ALL enrolled students including 5th/6th year seniors

       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.

2015-16 School Choice

The Cobb County School District is again offering School Choice (HB 251 and SB10) transfers for the 2015-2016 school year.  Individual school capacity information and applications will be available beginning February 1, 2015 on the District website.  For more information, please see our 2015-16 School Choice webpage.

 


 

STUDENT IDENTIFICATION

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.

DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY

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 unloading.
  • 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.
