As there continues to be questions and concerns related to the reopening of schools, we want to assure families our first priority is the safety and health of all students and staff. We understand the challenges the novel Coronavirus brings and have plans in place to continue learning in the classroom, while offering virtual instruction for families who do not feel comfortable sending their child(ren) to school. For more information on our district reopening plans, please click the link above.
As we continue to strive to serve our families with digital learning tools, instructions to prepare students to work on school assignments at home are available at the link above. The site linked is intended to support ALL students and families of Whitfield County Schools. Please watch the videos and consult the accompanying documents for guidance on how to access digital assignments.

Earning money for your school is easy! This year we’re making $700,000 available to participating schools to invest in classrooms, equipment and essential supplies. For every dollar spent at Food City* using your ValuCard, one point will be earned for your school. The more points earned, the larger share of the cash your school will receive. All you have to do is link your ValuCard to your school of choice and you’ll automatically earn points every time you shop!
Everyone’s connected to a school in some way. Maybe you work there, or have family enrolled in one, or you have a great school in your community. No matter the connection, schools and the education they provide are important, and anything that can help stretch a school’s budget allows them to provide the best education possible. Simply make a purchase of qualifying school supplies, provide your school's ID at checkout (in store and online) and your designated school will receive 5% back in credits for FREE supplies! It's a small act that can make a huge difference.
The Governor’s Office of Student Achievement (GOSA) prepares Georgia’s State, Local, and School Annual Report Cards. The Annual Report Cards contain test results as well as other information relevant to school performance toward the goals of student achievement and school completion. The Report Card is in compliance with both state and federal laws with respect to reporting requirements. GOSA partners with the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) to produce the K-12 Public Schools Reports since much of the data comes from GaDOE.
