Cherokee County, GA is home to one of the premier school districts in the State of Georgia and the Nation. There was a time when this statement could not have been farther from the truth. The school district chronicles where it was 15 years ago and where it is today in it’s latest release of Cherokee County School District’s “Renaissance in Education” publication.
The publication is available on the CCSD website and gives an overview of the significant educational policy and program changes and reform implemented throughout the School District under the leadership of the School Board and Dr. Frank R. Petruzielo, Superintendent of Schools. Parents, members of the community, and potential new residents are encouraged to review this comprehensive report on the status of CCSD educational system.
