Cobb Proposes Becoming IE2 District in 2015

By June 2015, state law requires all Georgia school districts to choose a framework for leading and operating schools. The Cobb County School District currently saves almost $44 million annually through state waivers no longer available after July 1, 2015, unless a contract is developed to become either a charter system or an Investing in Educational Excellence (IE2) system. The Cobb County Board of Education will take up the IE2 proposal at its Sept. 2014 meeting. CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION

New Pickett's Mill Pirate Logo

We have such talented students! We had two of our students design our new pirate logos. Hannah W. drew us "Skalawag Jack" and Hazel K. came up with "Treasure".  Great job!
