*Georgia Milestones and the Promotion, Placement and Retention Law*

The Georgia Promotion, Placement and Retention law (O.C.G.A, Section 20-2-282 through 20-2-285) and SBOE Rule 160-4-2.11 mandate the following:

Check-in/Check-out Procedures

 

Check-in Procedure:

All students must be checked in by their parents or guardians. Please do not send your child to check in by themselves.


Check-out Procedure:

Parents must check students out through the office. Students should not be checked out early except for emergencies, hardships, or appointments. Students who routinely check out early will be referred to an administrator and may be subject to the Attendance Policy. When checking a student out, parents/guardians must provide the receptionist with picture identification. Identification MUST be presented in order to check out your child. If you should fax a request for a change in the way a student goes home, we must have a picture identification attached to the fax.  We are not able to honor call in requests to change the way a student goes home. Faxes or notes should be brought in prior to 1:00 p.m. This is for the protection of the student.

 

*STUDENTS MAY NOT BE CHECKED OUT AFTER 2:00 P.M. DUE TO THE REGULAR AFTERNOON CONGESTION. PARENTS MAY NOT REMOVE STUDENTS FROM LOADED BUSES.

 

*WE DO NOT ACCEPT TELEPHONE MESSAGES THAT ASK FOR A STUDENT TO GO HOME A DIFFERENT WAY THAN HE OR SHE CAME TO SCHOOL. THE MESSAGE MUST BE IN WRITING FROM THE PARENT. THIS IS FOR YOUR CHILD'S OWN SAFETY.

Attendance Policy

 

STUDENT ATTENDANCE PROTOCOL

2024-2025

Cook County Schools

This document includes a protocol for addressing and decreasing the incidence of truancy in Cook County.  This protocol reflects commitments that various local agencies, offices, and individuals have made to promote the educational progress of children and families in Cook County.

This protocol was created by a local Student Attendance Protocol Committee, which included representatives of the following entities:

Cook County Superior Court

Cook County Juvenile Court

Cook County District Attorney’s Office

Georgia Department of Juvenile Justice

Cook County Board of Education Representatives

Cook County Board of Education Attorney

Cook County Sheriff’s Office

Cook County Department of Family and Children Services

Cook County Health Department

Cook County CCY (Family Connection)

Cook County Chamber of Commerce

Chief of Police from Adel, Lenox, and Sparks

The purpose of the committee is to make recommendations to the Cook County Board of Education regarding attendance policy and procedures, as well as to create guidelines for collaboration between local and state agencies having an interest or function related to educational achievement and school attendance in Cook County.

The Student Attendance Protocol Committee has agreed upon procedures, which are intended to allow the reduction of truancy at the individual, family, and community levels.  It is understood, however, that these procedures are general guidelines, and extenuating circumstances may be considered, as allowable by law, for each student and family.  In addition, it is understood that 

each state and local agency involved must first adhere to its own policies, which were considered in the development of this protocol.

Operational Authority

The Student Attendance Protocol Committee is operational under authority of the chief superior court judge as defined in O.C.G.A. 20-2-690.2.  Following adoption of this written protocol and filing with the Georgia Department of Education (GADOE), the committee will meet quarterly during its first year and twice annually thereafter for the purpose of evaluating compliance and effectiveness, and to modify the protocol as appropriate.
