Accreditation External Review
Cartersville City Schools underwent an AdvancED External Review October 23-26, 2016. This review determines the accreditation status of the district and its schools. The Review Team has recommended the continuing accreditation for Cartersville for another 5 years and highly commended the school system for its achievements, preparation, and commitment to continuous improvement. AdvancED is the largest accrediting agency in the world. The on-site review was a rigorous examination to ensure that the system meets accreditation standards and policies, demonstrates educational quality, and has the capacity to engage in continuous improvement. The school system will receive a full report from the AdvancED Review Team in 4 - 6 weeks. Click to view the AdvancED External Review Team Report.

Former CHS Student Petition for High School Diploma
On March 30, 2015, Governor Nathan Deal signed House Bill 91 into law providing that students shall no longer be required to earn a passing score on any graduation tests to earn a high school diploma. The law also contains details and requirements regarding the ability of students no longer enrolled to petition the local board of education for a diploma if the sole reason for not receiving a high school diploma was due to not passing any part of the graduation tests.
