Your Input Is Needed Again!

Each year, the state requests that the schools do a climate survey for their Climate Star Rating System on their CCRPI Report (College and Career Readiness Performance Index). Last year, with your input, we received 5 out of 5 stars on this report in this area. So, it is pretty important that your voice be heard again! It is quick and easy!

Affidavits are due!

We are now collecting affidavits of residence for the 2015-2016 school year. If you are new to Coweta County School System and did one when registering for this school year, you do not need to do another one.


To show residency, you will need two items from the following list:

 Mortgage documents or a security deed which indicates the location of the residence

 Apartment/home lease or rent receipt indicating the current address

 Current electric bill or application for electrical service showing service address

 Property tax records which indicates the location of the residence

 Voter precinct identification card or other voter documentation with current address


For your convenience, we have several notaries at the school that you can sign your form in front of. We will also help you get copies to the schools of your other children, if needed.
