SCCPSS students now scheduled to return to classes on Monday, September 18, 2017Use SHIFT+ENTER to open the menu (new window).
SCCPSS Continues Recovery Operations. Students are now scheduled to return to classes on Monday, September 18, 2017. Should that schedule change, information will be communicated through the District’s call notification system, sccpss.com, and the District’s Facebook and Twitter pages. As Georgia remains under a State of Emergency and families begin to return to the area, SCCPSS remains in an assessment and recovery mode. It is estimated that recovery procedures will take up to 3 days to stabilize all school operations, and to allow staff and families the appropriate time to safely return to their homes. School officials continue to assess district conditions and are working to prepare all facilities, school buses, and food services for safe re-entry and school opening. Classes will resume on Monday, September 18, 2017 for students. SCCPSS staff will return to work on a staggered re-entry. At this time, only essential staff are to report as directed by his or her Supervisor. Additional return to work notices for remaining staff will be provided in a future announcement. Tuesday (9/12) & Wednesday (9/13): Essential staff are to report as directed by his or her Supervisor.
ATTENTION MOWR STUDENTS: SSU classes resume, on Thursday, September 14, 2017. If students have challenges returning to campus, they should notify their professors via email. For more information, visit www.savannahstate.edu.

Operation Beacon Launched to Encourage Volunteering in SchoolsUse SHIFT+ENTER to open the menu (new window).
Attachment

The Savannah-Chatham County Public School System is looking for volunteers to donate their time at our schools. Volunteers provide valued resources and experiences for our students and create connections that strengthen our schools.  SCCPSS seeks to organize and capture our volunteers’ enthusiasm for education and passion for serving our schools.

The District is launching “Operation Beacon” as a new focused initiative to increase the number of volunteers who are currently working with our schools.  Volunteering provides a wide array of opportunities in school operations that range from classroom helpers to tutors and mentors, to extracurricular activities and special events.  We have opportunities to volunteer your time or expertise in nearly every area of interest!

In support of this initiative, SCCPSS will host six Volunteer Information Sessions the week of July 17th to share more details on the volunteer program. The schedule of sessions is as follows:

Tuesday, July 18, 2017 –

9:00am to 11:00am – Southwest Middle School, 6030 Ogeechee Road, Savannah

5:30pm to 7:30pm – Hodge Elementary School, 975 Clinch Street, Savannah

Thursday, July 20, 2017 –

9:00am to 11:00am & 5:30pm t0 7:30pm – BOTH sessions to be held at:

Saturday, July 22, 2017 –

9:00am to 10:30am & 10:30am to Noon – BOTH sessions to be held at:

Johnson High School, 3012 Sunset Blvd., Savannah

The sessions will provide community members interested in volunteering with a basic overview of the volunteer program and you’ll have the opportunity to speak with representatives from some of our schools.  The meetings are open to the public and we hope you can attend!

WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL SAFETY REMINDERSUse SHIFT+ENTER to open the menu (new window).

We ALL play a role in school safety.

All SCCPSS students will return to school, on Tuesday, January 5, 2016. 

As we prepare for the start of school, we want to ensure that your child continues to receive a quality learning experience.  School safety is a key factor in the achievement of this goal.  And while our schools are safe, it takes all of us to keep them that way.  Our effort to continually strengthen school safety and security helps maintain a positive learning environment where all students succeed.   

Because we all play a role in supporting a positive learning environment, here are a few safety reminders:

  • Access Control and Locked Doors:  All doors remain locked throughout the school day, and all visitors should enter through the front door of the school.
  • School Visitors: Visitors should have a legitimate reason for being at the school, and all must sign in at the front office.
  • Random Safety Searches for All Schools:  Our Campus Police Department will continue the practice of Random Administrative Searches.  The school searches provide an added level of security and will include all schools (Elementary, Middle, K8, and High Schools).
  • School Uniform Policy:  Please remember that all students are to adhere to the uniform policy and should not wear baggy clothing or loose garments.  Refer to the Student Code of Conduct for additional information.
  • Weapons and Dangerous Instruments:  Weapons and dangerous instruments are not permitted at school.  Please review the Student Code of Conduct with your child to ensure compliance with State Law and District Policy.
  • Student Code of Conduct:  The Student Code of Conduct is a great resource for every parent/guardian.  Please review this document regularly.  The Code of Conduct can also be found online at www.sccpss.com by searching the “Students” tab.   

Thank you so much for your support!  Maintaining a positive and safe learning environment remains a key priority.  We are glad that you are a part of the Savannah Early College High School Family and the Savannah-Chatham County Public School System!  

We look forward to a continued great school year!

Effective October 19, 2015, students who are absent from school must report immediately to Mrs. Myrick, SECHS Information Specialist, upon their return to school with their excuses and/or parent notes.

SSU Information on the Book Rental ProgramUse SHIFT+ENTER to open the menu (new window).

SSU Textbook Rental Program information for Dual-Enrolled SECHS Students & Parents/Guardians

 

Please note that in order for the students to participate in the program, their parents have to provide either a debit or credit card if the books are not returned or damaged. This information is needed before they can receive their books.  

 

Textbooks are provided to students in the Move on When Ready program for their use during the semester.  Books must be rented and returned at the end of the semester.  There is no cost to the student under the book rental program when the book is used and returned at the end of the semester.

 

The rental process requires a person at least 18 years of age to set up a textbook rental account with Follett (Savannah State University’s bookstore contractor) by going to (https://rental.bkstr.com) and completing the rental agreement form for the student (which includes providing credit or debit card information). 

 

Students wishing to keep their books may do so, and the credit or debit card listed on the rental agreement will be charged for the additional cost of the book (the total cost of the book less $25 per credit hour that Savannah State is reimbursed by the GSFC.)  If a used book is available, it will be provided as first choice.  Students wishing to upgrade their book may do so by paying the difference at the bookstore by cash, credit, or debit.

 

All books received by a MOWR student must be returned in a non-damaged condition by the end of the semester (December 12 for Fall Semester 2015).  If it is not returned in re-sellable condition, the credit/debit card provided will be charged for the total cost of the book less $25 per credit hour for that course.

 

The MOWR allowance is only for the use of textbooks and the MOWR student is responsible for any additional courseware associated with or contained in a customer courseware packet, such as additional CD/DVD(s), access codes, or supplemental materials.  MOWR students will only pay the difference between the textbook cost and the bundled packet cost, not the individual item costs.  For example, if there is a bundle with a textbook and access code, and the student purchases both, then the student pays the bundle cost less the cost of the textbook.  If the student only elects to purchase the textbook, there is no cost to the student.  If the student elects to buy only the access code, then that purchase is not covered by the textbook allowance and the student must pay the entire cost of the access code.

Georgia Milestones_Georgia's NEW Assessment SystemUse SHIFT+ENTER to open the menu (new window).

The Georgia Department of Education will implement a new testing system, the Georgia Milestones Assessment System (GMAS) during the 2014-2015 academic year. The new system will replace both the CRCT and the EOCT.

Georgia Milestones will be aligned to the Common Core Georgia Performance Standards (CCGPS) and will require more from students than the previous assessments, in order to better prepare students for college and career and to provide a more realistic picture of academic progress. A major benefit of the new system is that it is one consistent testing program across grades 3-12, whereas previously students took a series of individual tests.

With this transition, Dr. John Barge, the State Superintendent of Schools, wants the public to be prepared for the change. "The increased expectations for student learning reflected in Georgia Milestones may mean initially lower scores than the previous years' assessment scores, he said. "That is to be expected and should bring Georgia's tests in line with other indicators of how our students are performing. We need to know that students are being prepared, not at a minimum-competency level but with rigorous, relevant education, to enter college, the workforce or the military at a level that makes them competitive with students from other states."

The new testing system will include open-ended questions to better gauge students' content mastery, with some exceptions for special education students with specific testing accommodations. Georgia Milestones will be administered entirely online by the fifth year of implementation, compared to 35 percent online administration of the EOCT in 2013-2014

Continue checking www.sccpss.com for additional information on this important transition.

We assure you that as we make this transition, learning and teaching at high levels will continue to occur at Savannah Early College, as we purposefully align our instructional strategies and practices to promote student success on the Georgia Milestones Assessment System (GMAS).

We will share more information regarding the Georgia Milestones Assessment System (GMAS) as it becomes available, at Open House in the Fall, and throughout the school year.

Thank you so much for your continued support!
