A Tradition of Excellence . . . Making It Personal
PowerSchool access will be turned off on Thursday, May 28, so the schools can begin working on finalizing this year's information and the scheduling of students for the 2015-16 school year. Parent access will be turned back on when schedules are mostly finalized about 1 week after the start of the new school year. Questions about grades or PowerSchool information should be directed to the schools during this time. Thank you for your understanding.
Federal Programs Information Meeting: The system will host an information meeting for anyone interested in finding out more about our federal grant programs (Title I, Title II, Title III, Special Education) on Thursday, June 4 at 10:00 a.m. in the Board Room. This is an excellent way to find out about these programs, the system's plans regarding them, and our budget in each.
CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR 2015-2016 TEACHERS OF THE YEAR!

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.
Eleven Cartersville students in grades 6 through 11 signed GateKey Scholarship contracts on April 17, 2015. The signing of these contracts brings the number of GateKey Scholars to 97! Upon graduating from Cartersville High School, GateKey Scholars are able to attend Georgia Highlands College or Chattahoochee Technical College for two years at no cost. If the Scholars choose to attend another post-secondary institution, they may petition the Cartersville Schools Foundation to use their allocated scholarship funds elsewhere. Thank you Georgia Highlands College and Chattahoochee Technical College for your partnership in the GateKey Scholarship Program!
Our 2015 GateKey Scholars include Marvin Mazariegos (11th), Chelsea Stevenson (11th), Rosmery Melendez (9th), Rodrigo Vences (9th), Perignon Dyer (8th), Zion Hurt (8th), Bronwynn Henson (7th), Phaedra Coleman (6th), Samantha Gaylor (6th), Brittney Milian (6th), and James Shaw (6th). Congratulations to all GateKey Scholars!
