If you'd like to let us know about a planned absence, please contact your student's teachers and KSE's attendance clerk, Katie Craig.

Attendance Email: KingSpringsESSupport@CobbK12.org

Doctor’s note: KingSpringsESSupport@CobbK12.org

If there is no advance notice, the enrolling adult and family members with educational rights will receive an email and/or text at the end of the day when a student is marked absent.  This includes a link where you can respond to the message.  Reply by tapping on the link and providing an explanation or doctor's note.

Review the CCSD attendance protocol document linked below.


Three (3) unexcused absences: Teachers will communicate with parents regarding student attendance via e-mail, phone, parent conference or postcard. (If a principal opts to complete this communication in another way, it should be documented on their website.) Documentation should be kept by teachers throughout the school year. Teachers will utilize International Welcome Center translators to assist in communicating with parents who do not speak their primary language.

Five (5) unexcused absences: Each school will utilize a CSIS generated letter in order to communicate with parents. This must be adhered to as the Georgia Law referencing attendance states that the school is required to contact parents by two reasonable attempts.

Seven (7) unexcused absences: A School Social Work referral will be generated by principal or principal designee listing specific school-based interventions (telephone calls, letters, conferences, etc.) that have occurred prior to making the referral. Each intervention should be documented thoroughly.
