Congratulations Class of 2018

Congratulations to the 2018 graduates of Social Circle City Schools. As you leave the Circle behind, always remember to embrace friends and family, thank those who have stood beside you, reflect on all you've learned, and celebrate as you look forward to all that lies ahead. May God bless you.
~Dr. Todd McGhee~

Graduation for tomorrow night May 25th is still ON for outside at the Athletic Complex as planned.  We understand the graduates, their families, and this community would like to have an outdoor graduation.  Therefore, we will wait as long as possible to make final decisions.  We will not make a decision until 6 or 6:30 pm on Friday evening.  In the event graduation is inside, in order to enter the High School Gym, each person will need a bright orange ticket with a Social Circle High School embossed seal on it.  Each student was given 8 of these tickets today (Thursday) at practice.  In addition, we will be streaming the graduation ceremony in the Middle School Activity Center and Cafeteria.  The Middle School Activity Center and Cafeteria will be overflow seating so no ticket will be necessary.  The graduation ceremony will also be available by clicking the image below.

All Schools Improve

All Social Circle City Schools Improve 
on Georgia’s School Performance Index

Social Circle City Schools has improved its score on the index that measures public education performance and progress in the state at the district level and at all school levels.

Each school also received a 4 or 5 star rating on its School Climate Star Rating.  These ratings are based on survey results and data from the 2016-2017 school year.

The Georgia Department of Education announced the 2017 College and Career Ready Performance Index scores in a news release Thursday.

This is the sixth annual edition of the CCRPI, implemented in 2012 to replace the Adequately Yearly Progress measurement. The CCRPI combines state-mandated annual data, including the graduation rate and the Georgia Milestones Assessment System standardized tests, into one number on a 100-point scale to communicate how well public schools are doing.
