On behalf of the Glascock County Board of Education, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the Glascock County School System website. The faculty and staff at Glascock County Consolidated School are committed to providing our students quality instruction and motivational support to encourage academic excellence as well as independent thinking, reasoning, and interpersonal skills. The citizens of our community and the staff here at Glascock County have a long tradition of pride and unity.
The Glascock County School System will begin its second year as a Charter System this year. As a result of the Charter System status, students and parents will begin to see greater opportunities for students to excel in elementary and middle grades and greater opportunities for high school students to earn college and technical school credits prior to graduation. This year will mark the beginning of a Middle School Honors Program which will only affect eligible 8th graders at this time, but will hopefully expand down through upper elementary and up into high school in the near future.
For the past two years, Glascock County students have participated in dual enrollment at Warren County Career Academy through Oconee Fall Line Technical College, receiving high school and technical college credit. The Glascock County School System will open more doors for its students this year with a new dual enrollment program that will allow students to receive college credit from the University System of Georgia.
Partnering with the career academy and East Georgia College, which is in the University System, eligible students will be offered College Algebra, Pre-calculus, and English Composition I and II, while receiving both high school and college credit for the courses. As with the OFTC courses, students have no expense and the coursework does not count against the HOPE scholarship cap when students later enroll in a college, whether technical or in the University System.
The College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) serves as a comprehensive report card for all public schools in Georgia. CCRPI provides a score between 0-100 for each school, and that score measures how well the school is doing in preparing its students to be successful in college and/or a career. Our school system’s CCRPI score ranks very high among area systems.
An invitation will always be open for parents to become involved in the instructional process of our students. A personal invitation is extended for you to participate and become involved in our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), educational parent programs, Academic Nights, and our Box Tops program. We look forward to our relationship with you growing throughout the year, which will automatically lend itself to the enhancement and progression of your child’s academic accomplishments.
