Dear Students, Parents, Teachers & Friends of Education,

We Need Your Input!   

Barrow County School System has joined with SCoPE School Surveys to gain input on the district's communications. School Communications Performance Evaluation (SCoPE) Surveys seek feedback from our staff, parents and community members on how you receive information and whether you consider the communication to be effective. Through the surveys, we will learn whether people prefer receiving an email, seeing a post on social media, or reading about something in the local paper. We will also find out if we are providing enough information about key topics and issues.

Effective communication is essential to supporting our students' success as well as our success as a school district. Once again, we need to hear from our constituents on what is working and what is not and we ask everyone to participate.  Click here for survey

Bocce Competition Winners

Special Olympics Barrow County participated in local and state Fall Games in the sport of bocce. In September the high schools competed and in October the middle schools competed. Apalachee High School took all top honors in the Battle of Barrow Bocce, winning all the matches at the high school level.

Westside Middle School hosted the local middle school games. After much back and forth, Russell Middle School came in 1st with Bear Creek Middle School winning 2nd, and 3rd.

On the weekend of October 13-15, seventeen athletes attended the Special Olympics Georgia Fall Games in bocce. They earned 4 golds and one silver after a 14 hour day. Coach Susan Mullis was super proud of her team, and amazed at their perseverance! See pictures.
