Cambridge High School Governance Council Elections
Cambridge High School will be electing new representatives to serve on the School Governance Council. There is one parent/guardian position and one teacher position open for election this spring. The term of office is for two years starting July 1, 2015. Parents/guardians wishing to declare their candidacy must have a student attending the school during the two-year period. 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. They 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 draw up a Strategic Plan that has the following long term outcomes:
1. Enhance individualized learning opportunities for students
2. Improve students' life skills for success in college and careers
3. Increase students' overall wellness and resiliency for improved social and academic success
Cambridge High School's Governance Council worked to gain approval for two Requests For Flexibility (RFF's) that will directly benefit the School's Strategic Initiatives and short term goals. These RFF's are effective starting 2015-16 school year. The first RFF is for the Personal Fitness Waiver for students who successfully participate in a GHSA-sanctioned sport (one full season for varsity athletes or two full seasons for sub-varsity sports) or one season of marching band. The second one allows the school to have one early release day on PSAT day, October 14, 2015, and two full professional days, September 21, 2015 and February 11, 2016. This will give the faculty one day a month for professional learning making it an ongoing process.
Elections for the parent/guardian and teacher position 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).

Friday Checkout Procedures and Bell Schedule
Due to the volume of parents and guardians requesting to check out of their student(s) on the Friday before a school break, we have put into place the following checkout procedures for Friday, April 3.
- Parents and Guardians planning to checkout their student out on Friday, April 3 must have a signed and dated note requesting their student to be checked out to the Attendance Office, by 4:00 pm on Thursday, April 2.
- Students who have submitted a checkout note prior to 4:00 pm on Thursday will receive a pass Friday morning with their designated checkout time. The student should give their pass to their teacher to leave at their checkout time, reducing disruption to the classroom. The student needs to sign out at the Attendance Office prior to leaving.
- Due to a planned school activity, walk-in checkouts by parents and guardians cannot be honored after 1:00 pm on Friday. Checkout without prearranged passes will require a parent or guardian checkout their student.
Other checkout reminders:
- Checkouts that result in any part of the school day being missed is considered unexcused until a medical or legal note from the parent or guardian is submitted to the attendance office. For a list of excused absences please refer to the attendance guidelines (link to attendance).
To keep classroom disruptions to a minimum, we ask that students not be checked out during the first and last ten minutes of the period. If the student does not have a pre-arranged check out note, a hand delivered note will be taken to the student when a student aid is available. We do not call into rooms to dismiss students.
Friday, April 3 Bell Schedule:
Please note that 6th period has been moved up in the day to accommodate lunches. Students who normally check out at 6th period will report to the media center during 6th period.

First Round Course Verification
Return deadline March 31
Once you have reviewed and signed your student's course verification form, please encourage your student to turn their form in to their first period teacher. All first round course verification forms are due by Tuesday, March 31.
The course verification form lists courses your student's current core subject teachers have recommended for the next school year.
- If your student would like to change one of the courses recommended on the form, cross through the course and write in the desired course. If this change is from an on-level to an honors or Advanced Placement (AP) course and your student does not meet the Fulton County Schools placement guidelines (available on our website), a completed waiver form must be attached to the student's form.
- The form also includes a list of available electives. Students will choose enough electives so that they have a total of six courses each semester. Please keep in mind that some courses are year-long and some courses are semester-long.
- If your student plans to take an online course either over the summer or next year, please indicate this on your student's form. This does not register them or commit them to the course; it is for planning purposes only.
Students should read the instructions carefully and return completed forms (and attached waiver if applicable) to their first period teacher by March 31, 2015. You can find more resources under "About" and "Academics".
