 Mission Statement

 The mission of Calhoun County Public Schools, in unity with parents and community, is to provide an environment conducive to learning that challenges all students to reach their maximum potential for success in a rapidly changing global society.



We envision a school district where everyone works harmoniously in a safe and caring environment to help all students reach their maximum potential

Important Information for the 2015-2016 School Year


Registration for the new school year will be held in the gymnasium on Thursday, August 6, 2015, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. for kindergarten through eighth grade.  During registration, you will be asked to complete the necessary forms for the upcoming year prior to receiving your child/children's schedule or teacher's name.  A registration fee of $20.00 for students in grades kindergarten through third grade and $15.00 for students in fourth through eighth grade is due at registration.




The School District of  Calhoun County  is certainly to be commended for the technology initiative that will be taking place during the 2015-2016 academic year.  Students in grades 3-12 will each receive a Chrome Book, which will be used in the classroom for instructional purposes.  We are certainly fortunate to have a district that understands and supports the importance of ensuring that all students are college and career ready upon graduation! 




We are very excited to announce that breakfast will be served in the classrooms this year.  The school will continue to open promptly at 7:20 a.m.  Child Development through sixth grade students will report directly to their hallway.  Students will sit outside their classroom until 7:45 a.m. (students will be supervised).   At 7:45 a.m. students will enter the classroom and receive their breakfast.  Seventh and eighth grade students will report directly to the cafeteria and remain there until dismissed for breakfast at 7:45 a.m.  We anticipate breakfast being completed by 8:00 a.m.  It is very important that students who plan to eat breakfast arrive at school by 7:45 a.m. daily.  Please be patient with us as we work through the first few days of school and make adjustments as necessary.  Thank you in advance for your support!


Open House

Please plan to join us on August 20, 2015 at 6:00 p.m. for Open House.   A  brief meeting will be held in the gymnasium prior to visiting classrooms.
