Welcome to the Ocee Elementary website! If you are trying to find out more about Ocee, this is a great place to start. What makes this school a terrific learning environment for children? Obviously, we offer a strong academic framework – high standardized test scores and other data reflect the dedication and hard work of students, teachers, staff, and parents. You can visit the Fulton County Schools website –www.fultonschools.org - to see more test data as evidence of teaching and learning here. We also have a very active PTA that supports the school’s efforts to educate students to their fullest potential. Check out the PTA website – oceepta.org – for more information about the important role the PTA and parent volunteers play in challenging and engaging our children. Ocee parents are very serious about their children’s education and partnering with the school. We have a School Governance Council composed of parents, school staff, and community members who are working together to create an even more successful school environment.

School Governance Council Parent and Teacher Elections for 2015-16
Ocee Elementary School will be electing new representatives to serve on the School Governance Council. There is one parent/guardian position (for a two year term) and one teacher position open for election this spring. Our School Governance Council has a leadership role in the governance of the school. The Council works with the principal on the long-term vision and strategy for the school. Members are responsible for approving the school's strategic plan and budget recommendations, as well as designing innovative solutions to increase academic achievement and meet the unique needs of our school community. This past year, our Council worked diligently to create a strategic plan, submitted and received Requests for Flexibility allowing for three additional staff development days, and applied for and received seed fund money allowing for the transformation of the media center into a 21st Century Learning Commons.
Elections for the parent/guardian and teacher positions on the School Governance Council will be held May 5th – 7th. Candidates interested in running for an elected position on the Council must complete a candidate declaration form and submit to the district office by April 28th!
Candidate forms may be submitted electronically (click appropriate link below, complete form and click "submit") or by mail (get a copy of the form from the school's front office and follow mailing instructions on the back of the form).

The process for assigning students to classes for the 2015 – 2016 school year will begin in May. There are multiple factors that we consider when creating classes including language arts and math levels and special support programs. Additionally, while it is not necessary, we do welcome input from our parents. The Parent Placement Input form is available for you to indicate special needs or to provide additional information about your children. It is available at the front desk and by clicking the link below. Please understand that all students' individual needs are considered before they are placed in classes; parents do not have to submit a placement form. Also, please remember that specific teacher requests will not be considered. Parent Placement Input forms must be signed (they will not be accepted by email) and returned to Pam Weiser, Curriculum Support Teacher, no later than Wednesday, May 6. Any forms submitted after the deadline will not be accepted. Parent Placement Form
