Jeremy Satterwhite is Druid Hills High's new Bookkeeper! He comes to us with bookkeeping experience from Clayton County. Ms. Thim will be working alongside Mr. Satterwhite this week to orient him to all things Druid Hills.

AP Test Updates

The Board of Education will be considering this evening whether to approve The District paying fees for one AP test for every DCSD test-taker. This is in addition to the test fees for one AP test for students on Free and /or Reduced Lunch paid for by the GaDOE.

We will provide related follow-up information shortly.

The registration deadline for AP tests has been moved to Monday, March 6. Test takers must register through this link: https://user.totalregistration.net/AP/110162. All payments must be made online using a credit or debit card - you will not be able to pay in-person at Druid Hills High.

We do have limited funding for students taking multiple tests with financial need. Please contact Mr. Alexander for more information.

English, Math, Science, Social Studies Teachers - RtI Webinar Completion Reminder

As DCSD continue to build academic supports through Response to Intervention (RTI), the District purchased Skills Navigator to help with progress monitoring. We will use Skills Navigator as a progress monitoring tool to assess students' response to supports in areas of academic skill deficits. Below you will find a links to the required District Webinar that you are required to watch and the electronic sign off for the webinar. The webinar is less than 5 mins in length. Please complete this task by Thursday, 2/16.
