Good Afternoon,

I am pleased and honored to announce that our school district has been named the 2018 Georgia Charter System of the Year. This award was presented to the Coffee County Schools during the 4th Annual Georgia Charter System Foundation awards luncheon in Athens, Georgia on Wednesday, October 3.

I want to personally thank all of our students, faculty, staff, community members, school governing council members and school board members, who have been committed to our mission of “Destination Graduation for College Career and Life”.  Initially approved as a Charter System in 2013, we have raised achievement to the point that we are now recognized across the state for excellence in education.

Coffee County is one of 45 Georgia charter systems across the state representing county and city school systems. Every charter school district is as diverse as the students they educate from Fulton County as the largest with Taliaferro County as the smallest. As a charter system, our district is given flexibility to be creative and innovative to better meet the needs of our students. In exchange, the district has increased accountability which the district continues to meet.

As the Charter System of the Year for 2018, Coffee County was selected from the following list of nominees that were considered for the Charter System Leadership Award or Georgia Charter System of the Year:

Atlanta Public Schools
Baldwin County Schools
Barrow County Schools
Calhoun City Schools
Coffee County Schools
Dougherty County Schools
Dublin City Schools
Floyd County Schools
Fulton County Schools
Lumpkin County Schools
Morgan County Schools

This award is to be shared by all. To you, our students and staff, our parents, business partners, community members, school governing councils and our Coffee County Board of Education. It truly takes everyone working together to educate our children.  

Congratulations Coffee County - 2018 Georgia Charter School System of the Year!
