  • Our Mission
    Our mission is to stimulate growth in student achievement by continuing efforts to advance the development of all stakeholders-students, parents, staff, and the community.
  • Our Vision
    Our vision for Candler County Charter School System is for all students to meet or exceed Georgia Accountability measures (CCRPI), for the graduation rate to continuously improve 85% and above, and for the system to perform on or above state averages in all subject areas. We will accomplish this vision with high expectations inclusive of acceleration opportunities, high impact literacy practices, multiple interventions, student, community and parent engagement and alignment from Pre-K-12. As a result of our success, we will attract high performing teachers and new business and industry, and our graduates will be prepared to continue post-secondary options or pursue gainful employment through a variety of CTAE (Career, Technology, and Agriculture Education) offerings and a broad based soft skills curriculum.

    an aligned standards-based curriculum, instruction, and assessment that provides for extended learning opportunities for all students;

March 27 Announcement
Greetings!
I hope that each of you are staying safe and making the best of these unprecedented times.

A bit of good news is that the Governor has listed April 27th as a return date for resuming traditional school. Even though CCSD has done a great job of providing engaging work to students and families that have been amazing in their cooperation, there is no substitute for face to face interaction. Digital learning is an enhancement but currently cannot replace the teacher in our daily school setting. With that being stated, again I am extremely proud of all involved for stepping up in these times.

With the Governor's announcement yesterday, we will continue our digital learning focus for CCSD. We will also continue our feeding program for all students but there are some slight changes. We are limiting the number of delivery sites but enhancing our protocols with social distancing at each site. Please be on the lookout for an updated delivery schedule that will begin Monday. If you have questions regarding site locations for food pickup please email travislanier@metter.org.

Our scheduled Spring Break is 4/13-4/17. There will be no digital learning or food distribution during this week.

Our hopes and prayers are to return to school in a traditional fashion April 27th, 2020. When we return, our focus will be on shoring up gaps that might exist from our digital learning plan and to also salvage as much as possible in terms of events, opportunities, and traditions that are historically a part of the year end of school.

Stay safe and practice CDC recommendations in order that we might return to school on 4/27. Have a great weekend!

Digital Learning Plan
Our school district teachers and staff have worked very hard creating learning opportunities for students in the event of school closures. We have the platform to release daily, engaging videos and short assignments to ensure our students have access to instruction while schools are closed. For those students without internet access, we will have instructional packets available for pickup or mailing if necessary. There will be staff available in our offices to mail assignments or arrange pickups/drop offs. Please contact your child’s school or the office of Curriculum and Instruction if you need assistance with paper-pencil assignments pickup, drop off, or mailing.

Recently, we surveyed all of our students to determine access to the internet and access to a device. Our district is very blessed to have over 90% of our students with internet access. For those students with internet but no device, we have a detailed plan for technology and issuing devices to students to use at home during school closures. That plan will be shared on Tuesday, 3/17/2020. In the meantime, while they await their loaner device, students with PS4s and Xbox Ones may also access our digital learning platform.

Every teacher in our school district, Prek-12, has a Google Classroom in which the students are already members of and have been trained to use. To access this classroom, students can login to Google using their school assigned login information or visit classroom.google.com.
Students may begin daily assignments on Wednesday 3/18/2020. Teachers will post activities daily for the following day’s assignment. Students will also have the chance to ask questions via the comment feature on Google Classroom.

You may contact your child’s teacher via Google Classroom, Class DOJO, or email if you have any questions about assignments or need assistance. For questions on using Google Classroom, please contact ccooper@metter.org or call the Curriculum office at (912) 685-5713. For questions about the technology plan and obtaining devices, call (912) 682-2883.

Thank you for your partnership in making sure your child has the best education possible!
Technology Plan
Parents may come to the Metter High School front office to pick-up a technology device to be used while school is closed due to the COVID-19 virus. Pick-up times will be from 10am-2pm daily the week of 3-16 thru 3-20. All parents including those with students at the K-8 school will need to go to MHS for pick-up. A picture id will be required to obtain a device. Office hours for technology support will be from 9-10 am and 2-4pm weekdays while school is not in session. Technology support is offered for password issues, charger, missing keys, broken screen and some Wi-Fi issues only. Any issues with the use of Google Classroom or assignments will need to be directed to the student’s teacher. Support number for technology related questions is 912-682-2883.
