Wilson Creek's Days for Teacher Professional Development
PARENTS! As part of our strategic plan and request for flexibility, Wilson Creek teachers will engage in three extra days of professional development. On these days, students will not attend school. For this school year, the three dates are September 8, November 20 and February 16. The placement of these days will allow you to plan longer vacations or family events. Please add these dates to your calendar in addition to the dates on the Fulton County calendar.
Volunteering at Wilson Creek
The State of Georgia has implemented a law that includes all school volunteers “who interface with students” as mandated reporters of child abuse and neglect (HB 1176, Part V, Section 5-1). Fulton County Schools now requires all volunteers to be trained on the child abuse reporting protocol.
Please read below for information on volunteering during the 2015-2016 school year.
- All volunteers that registered and volunteered at Wilson Creek before July 1, 2015 will receive a renewal notification via email. The notifications will be sent to the email address that was provided on your volunteer application form.
- If you registered as a volunteer last year, but never visited Wilson Creek and did not have a valid identification scanned into Raptor, you will not receive an email notification and will need to complete the volunteer registration process again.
- If you are a new volunteer, you must register PRIOR to your first volunteer commitment at Wilson Creek. The process may take up to 48 hours to process. Please follow these steps:
o Register at http://www.fcsvolunteers.org/
o Complete the mandatory online training.
o Complete the volunteer application form and submit.
o Wait for a confirmation email from Fulton County Schools.
o Bring your valid ID to school each time you visit Wilson Creek.
Fulton County Schools Launches Enrollment Online!!!
Fulton County Schools is making it easier for parents of new students to complete their child's registration for enrollment into a Fulton County School. Parents can access the easy-to-complete, online form here. This option allows parents to control the data supplied for their student's enrollment and provide for more timely processing of the enrollment request. Parents can upload copies of the required supporting documents in .pdf, jpeg, and .tif formats. A list of required documents can be found here.
While this registration process will make it easier, parents will still need to bring their original to the school prior to the start of school. School personnel, must verify the authenticity of the documentation prior to enrollment being completed.
We hope you find this new tool helpful and welcome your feedback as we continue our efforts to provide efficiency and flexibility. Please click here to tell us what you think.
