In an effort to improve system practices and as a requirement for continued accreditation, we are conducting a Parent Survey. We value your opinion and ask that you take the time to complete a brief but important survey. Each parent in the home may and is encouraged to participate. Please be assured that your responses to the survey will be anonymous. Your honest opinion is appreciated. You are encouraged to respond to any of the surveys where you have children in our school system by clicking on the appropriate link below. Thank you for your help!
Access to the PowerSchool Parent Portal will be disabled so that required updates and scheduling can be done for the 2016-17 school year. The portal will be back up and running after the new school year starts and schedules are finalized, approximately August 11. Thank you for your understanding.

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.
