The Cherokee County School Board on Thursday, Nov. 21, 2019 heard an update on CCSD’s Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) initiative, including projects underway to increase counseling services and create a “parent university” program for providing parents more information to help their children’s safety and well-being.
The purpose of Child Find is to identify, locate, and evaluate children and youth, who are suspected of having or have a diagnosed disability or developmental delay, in order to provide free appropriate Special Education services. The Cherokee County School District serves children from age 3 to 21 years old.
It's National School Psychology Awareness Week! We greatly appreciate all that our CCSD school psychologists do to help our students succeed. #CCSDfam
We’re proud of our CCSD family’s outstanding teachers… and every week, you’ll get to know one of them better through a Q&A posted here. #CCSDfam
Cherokee County School District schools continue to score high among their community members for fostering a positive school climate and culture!
The District earned a four-star average on the five-star scale in the Georgia Department of Education’s annual ratings, which measure how a community views the quality of its school’s culture and character; the highest possible rating is five stars. The rating is based on a survey of students, parents and teachers; student discipline issue rates; and daily attendance.
