2:00 PM School Board Meeting
Make-up School Day
Students will attend school on Thursday, February 15, 2018. Originally, this day was a student holiday and will now be an academic make-up school day. As a reminder, the students will also be in school for a full day on Wednesday, February 14, 2018, as a Hurricane Irma make-up day.
New School District Information
The Effingham County School District is considering a proposal to modify the current school district lines across the county. Effingham County parents/guardians are, therefore, invited to attend one or all of three public hearings to review the proposed district changes. Please visit our Transportation website for more information.
Emancipation Diploma Bill Process
On Monday, March 30, 2015 Governor Nathan Deal signed the Emancipation Diploma Bill (HB 91) into law. This law means that students who completed school at an Effingham County School System high school and have previously met all graduation requirements with the exception of passing the Georgia High School Graduation Tests (GHSGT) or the Basic Skills Tests can petition to be granted a diploma.
Petitioners should complete an application available on the district website (click here) or in person at the Effingham County Board of Education office at 405 N. Ash St., Springfield GA. There is no deadline for submission of a petition, so applications are being continuously accepted and reviewed. Petitioners should allow three to four weeks for completion of the review process.
Further questions may be directed to Mrs. Wendy Porter at 912-754-5508.
To provide rigorous and relevant instruction in a safe environment to enable all students to obtain a high school diploma as a foundation for post secondary success.
