A community is only as good as its schools. And great public schools are a big reason why Coweta County is a vibrant and enriching place to live. Coweta County Schools combine a small-town, community-based feel with big-city advantages and opportunities for our students.

“A passionate and caring school system dedicated to excellence, energized by the notion of family, and committed to the success of each student.” That is how the AdvancED Accreditation Review Committee described the Coweta County School System, following their review for five-year reaccreditation of our schools in 2016. According to the independent team’s evaluation, Coweta Schools performed at much higher levels than the average AdvancED-accredited learning institutions, in terms of teaching and learning, leadership capacity, and management of resources. During accreditation, school system stakeholders – including students and parents, teachers and community members – described Coweta Schools in several ways: “Student-Centered” “Accountable”

“Caring” “Safe”

“Amazing” “Nurturing”

“I would not want to be anywhere else.”

“Exceptional”

“Rigorous” “Committed”

In the Coweta County School System, you will find schools among the top-performing in the state of Georgia and the nation: • On-time graduation rates and student performance on Georgia Milestones exams that well exceed state of Georgia averages. • Student SAT and ACT performance that exceeds state and national averages. • High rates of participation in Advanced Placement, college dual-enrollment and apprenticeships and work-based learning. • Distinctions such as a robust fine arts curriculum, outstanding athletic programs, a sophisticated technology environment including 1-to-1 pairing of students with Chromebook devices, and other advanced opportunities for students. • Honors that include AP Stem and Humanities distinctions, state Reward schools, Georgia School Boards Association Exemplary School Board, state financial awards, state and national distinctions for high return on educational investment, and Georgia’s 2018 State Superintendent of the Year. From academics to the arts to athletics – from college prep to career readiness – Coweta County Schools are committed to ensuring the success of every student. We invite you to visit our schools, tour the Central Educational Center College and Career Academy, or attend a performance at the Donald W. Nixon Centre for Performing and Visual Arts. See for yourself why Great Schools are at the Heart of our Coweta community.

2018 TEACHER OF THE YEAR

Elm Street music instructor helps connect music to life

BY REBECCA LEFTWICH becky@newnan.com

Josh Tate has spent his entire career at Elm Street Elementary School helping his young students connect music to their lives. Ta t e , t h e C o w e t a County School System’s 2018 Teacher of the Year, said his selection was “an enormous honor.” His colleagues – as well as Elm Street Principal Christi Hildebrand, who has worked with Tate for nine of his 11 years at the school – say it’s his willingness to go above and beyond his teaching duties that makes him a successful educator. “The positive relationships he develops with all of us is the foundation for what he’s able to accomplish in other people’s lives,” Hildebrand said. “He opens car doors and ketchup packets with a smile each day.” Tate conducts the school chor us, directs school musicals and serves on the honor chorus board, as well as serving on Elm Street’s leadership, safety and positive behavior teams and heading up the school’s Monday running club. He spends his planning time visiting other classes, supporting the work of classroom teachers and students in an academic setting, Hildebrand said. He also has helped orga-

nize play days and cookouts in neighborhoods near Elm Street, and he even installed full stage lighting at the school on his own time. He accepted the award at a May ceremony honoring Teachers of the Year from 31 schools in the Coweta County School System, from which three finalists were selected. The other two finalists were Lori Beuttenmuller, an ESL teacher at Welch Elementary School; and Cathrine Nolan, a science and agriculture teacher at the Central Educational Center. Teachers of the year included: Element a r y schools: Cristy Fogle, fifth grade (Arbor Springs), Kelly Stephens, first grade (ArncoSargent), Christy Jennings, music (Atkinson), Kati Ferrell, EIP (Brooks), Ruthie Prost, kindergarten (Canongate), Debra Jordan, third-grade math (Eastside), Deanna Betsill, first grade (Glanton), Daria Lewis, second grade (Jefferson Parkway), Kim Robertson, fourth grade (Moreland), Amy Palma, four th grade ( Newnan Crossing), Wendi Oldham, second grade (Northside), Mignon Perry, third grade (Popla r R oad), Mol ly Breyne, fourth grade (Ruth Hill), Shavonnda Teagle, third grade (Thomas Crossroads), Kelly Brown,

fifth grade math (Western), Sheila Bealing, second grade (White Oak) and SteveAnna Williams, k inderga r ten ( Willis Road). Middle schools: Polly C r a f t , s e ve nt h g r a d e English/Language Arts (Arnall Middle), Barry Williams, eighth grade social studies (Ea st Coweta Middle), Emily Marziliano, special education math (Evans Middle), Kristin Davis, eighth grade math (Lee Middle), Angela Rembert, seventh grade English/Language Arts (Madras Middle), Carrie May, eighth grade English/ Language Arts (Smokey Road Middle) and Gordon Callaway, middle school literature (Maggie Brown Middle Alternative). High schools: Dekima Leaphart, science (East C owet a H i g h) , K at ie Hammond, U.S. history ( New n a n H ig h), Jody Haynes, math (Northgate High) and Lisa Ottavio, math (Winston Dowdell Academy). Coweta County Teachers of the Year are selected by their peers for the quality of their teaching, professional development, teaching philosophies and methods, contributions to education and their ability to inspire students of all backgrounds and abilities to learn.

Charter schools honor outstanding educators, staff ODYSSEY CHARTER SCHOOL honored second-

grade teacher Michelle Carter, who was selected by her peers as the school’s Teacher of the Year. “Although there were numerous candidates nominated this year, our winner was – by an overwhelming margin – Ms. Michelle Carter," Principal Scot Hooper said, announcing the winner during a celebratory post-planning meeting with Odyssey’s teaching staff last spring. Carter, a veteran teacher who holds a degree in elementary education from C l e m s o n U n i v e r s i t y, took over her classroom mid-year. “With no preparation time or assistance, Ms. Carter moved right in and began teaching,” Hooper said. “Not only did Ms. Carter receive the outstanding vote for Teacher of the Year by her peers, but we have received numerous positive comments from parents of the scholars in (her) classroom.” Carter received a trophy and flowers. She and her fellow teachers enjoyed a celebratory cake following

the presentation.

COWETA CHARTER ACADEMY AT SENOIA recognized

several of its outstanding teachers and staff members for the 2017-18 academic year. Patricia Hall received the Award of Excellence and Paige Bass received the New Teacher Award. Emily Carnes was named New American Hero, or Teacher of the Year. “I’m proud of the work these three professionals put forth for our students each day,” Principal Gene Dunn said. “They are model educators and CCAS is fortunate to have them on staff.” The Award of Excellence is presented to a paraprofessional or non-instructional team member who has an exceptional impact

on the school community and the lives of students. Hall, a 13-year veteran parapro, completed her fourth year at CCAS last spring. New Teacher of the Year is presented to an outstanding educator who is in his or her first full year of teaching. Bass completed her first year of teaching as well as her first year at CCAS last spring. T h e N e w A m e r ic a n Hero Award, also known as the Teacher of the Year, is presented to an outstanding educator who is in his or her second full year of teaching or beyond.

Biscuits back on the menu

METROCREATIVE GRAPHICS

Coweta County school lunch prices to increase BY REBECCA LEFTWICH becky@newnan.com

Coweta County School Sys t em s t udent lu nch prices will increase by 5 cents this year, with element a r y lu nch r i sing to $2.80 and middle and high school lunches climbing to $3.05. Subsidies f rom the National School Lunch P r og r a m pr ov ide f r e e and reduced lunches to qua lif y ing students in

pa r ticipating school d istr ict s , l i ke C owet a County. In return, the distr ict is required to m a i nt a i n “ p a id lu nch equity,” meaning it must charge paying students an amount in line with the national subsidy for free lunches. Incremental increases in school lunch prices are necessary to ensure sufficient funds for the school system nonprofit School

Food Ser vice Program to cover the cost of meals served to students who are not eligible for free or reduced lunches, according to school officials. Cost for Coweta County School System employees lunches is $4 a nd adult v isitors pay $4.50. Reduced lunches for qualif ying students are 40 cents. The cost for all student breakfasts is $1 with the

exception of those students on reduced meals, who pay 30 cents. Breakfasts for Coweta County School System employees are $2 .25, and cost for adult visitors’ breakfasts is $2.75. Regular biscuits will b e b a c k on t he me nu at school cafeterias th is yea r, a more welcome change than price increases. School cafeterias will

be allowed to offer regular biscuits again after the Georgia Department of E duc ation’s S cho ol Nutrition Division decided in June no longer to require that only whole-grain biscuits be served to students. “Some of the restrictions placed on certain fo o d t y p e s h ave b e en lifted,” Superintendent Steve Barker said. Most students prefer

regular biscuits over the whole-grain kind, Barker said, so the demand for school breakfasts likely will rise. “Biscu it s w ith f lou r are a little more popul a r w ith ou r s t udent s who come (into school) i n t h e m o r n i n g hu n gry,” Barker said. “It will increase participation in the school food program, and that’s the goal.”
