Provide a copy of the award letter(s) to Mrs. Carstens in Student Services by 4pm on May 1, 2018. There are no exceptions to this deadline.
When submitting the award letter, we need a copy of the actual award letter (not a summarized statement from parent or student), amount of award, if it is renewable, and if the student is accepting the award or not.
Individual scholarship names and amounts are not reported, only a grand total of all offers to Roswell students is reported at graduation.

School Governance Council Candidates Need Your Vote
Vote March 19 – March 23, 2018
Roswell High School will be electing representatives to serve on the School Governance Council. We will be electing parent/guardian positions and teacher positions for our spring election. Our School Governance Council has a leadership role in the governance of the school. The Council works with the principal in setting 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.
Qualified Candidate Statements:
RHS Parents! As a candidate for SGC parent representative, I am asking for your vote. I am interested in working with the SGC to represent you, and explore innovative ideas to move RHS further down the path already blazed by past faculty, parents and students. Professionally, I have worked in strategic technology since 1997, initially as an SAP developer for PriceWaterhouse. In 2009 I transitioned to program management as an independent consultant for large/at risk implementations working for companies such as BP Amoco & Delta Air Lines. My work required generating innovative and agile solutions, engaging with executives in evaluating priorities including budget/timeline tradeoffs, determining the next smallest unit of achievable work to build momentum, and addressing corporate culture as a component of any successful change. Academically, I have balanced my technology leanings with undergraduate studies at the University of California at Berkeley in Psychology, with a focus on early childhood development, and I obtained a Master’s degree at Indiana University in Educational Psychology with a focus on Higher Education. I have recently taken a leave of absence from the corporate world in favor of staying home with my teen son and daughter, to ensure I stay connected with them as they navigate their high school years. I hope to be able to add value to the strategic planning process for RHS in support of all of our children. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
I have been a part of the Roswell Family since 2010. I have one son that graduated in 2013 and one graduating this year in May. My third and youngest son has two years left of high school. As a parent and member of this community, I want the opportunity to aid Roswell High School in its continuous advancement and improvements to benefit all students. Thank you for the consideration!
I am a science teacher, coach and assistant athletic director. Throughout my day I interact with the lowest performing/socioeconomic group to the highest performing/socioeconomic group. I see all levels of participation at the school and I am actively involved in helping our students.

Code of Conduct Guidelines
Dear Roswell High School Stakeholder,
The Roswell High School Administrative team has developed the discipline guidelines for the 2017-2018 school year.
It is the belief of the leadership at Roswell High School that discipline serves two purposes:
1. To teach students to discipline themselves so they can learn the habits and skills that will enable them to become productive members of society
2. To provide a safe, orderly, and secure learning environment so teachers can teach and students can learn.

We Are Roswell – Career Technology
Great work and initiatives by some of Roswell High School’s Career & Technical Education students are highlighted in this video produced by FultonSchools! The video features interviews with Ms. Kennedy’s Broadcast Video Program, students from Mr. Elliot’s Construction Technology Program (see minute 13:30), as well as interviews with a few of Mr. Lee’s top Computer Science students (see minute 24:30) .
As a provision of the Georgia Special Needs Scholarship Program (GSNSP), parents of students with disabilities who receive special education services may choose to transfer their child to another public school in Fulton County. Parents can request a transfer to another public school as long as there is available space at that school and the school has a program with the services agreed to in the student’s existing individualized education program. If you are interested in more information about the GSNSP in Fulton County schools and want to access the online application form, please visit the GSNSP information page. The application window is March 1-May 1, 2016. Questions may be directed to the Services for Exceptional Children department at firstname.lastname@example.org
Students Enrolled in Off-Campus Virtual Classes
Students who take virtual classes off campus in lieu of classes at the high school campus may arrive at a later time or leave at an earlier time than the typical arrival and dismissal times of the school. Students taking online classes off campus are not permitted to loiter on campus during the respective periods and may face disciplinary consequences for loitering. It is the responsibility of the student and his/her parents or guardians to provide transportation and to arrange timely pick up from and drop off for school. Students being dropped off after the start of the school day must report to their class on time. No excused absences will be given for arriving to school late.
