Commerce City Schools is excited to welcome a police presence from the Commerce Police Department in the mornings to the intersection of Lakeview Drive and the Commerce/Jefferson Road.  The goal in working with the police department is to alleviate the morning traffic that occurs between 7:30-8:00 am.  Beginning on Monday, April 17, the police department will have an officer stationed at that intersection.  Please take caution to watch for the traffic officer and have patience as we work together to make this intersection safer and more efficient for everyone.  A big thanks to the police department for taking initiative to address this issue.

Parents & Guardians: 

Please take a few moments to complete the Georgia Parent Survey.  The data from this short survey will be used to calculate the School Climate Star Rating. The Georgia Department of Education believes that a positive school climate is a significant factor in determining student achievement. School climate surveys were developed by the GaDOE to gather school climate perceptions from students, school staff members and parents.  Responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis.  Your participation is greatly appreciated.

2016-2017 Student Attendance Protocol

posted Oct 7, 2016, 7:55 AM by Tobie Jones   [ updated Oct 7, 2016, 7:55 AM ]

You are hereby notified of the consequences under Georgia law (O.C.G.A. 20-2-690.1) that state what can occur when a student has accumulated 7 or more absences.

Any parent, guardian, or other person residing in this state who has control or charge of a child or children and who shall violate this Code section shall be  guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction thereof, shall be subject to a fine not less than $25.00 and not greater than $100.00, imprisonment not to exceed 30 days, community service, or any combination of such penalties, at  the discretion of the court having jurisdiction. Each day’s absence from school  in violation of this part after the child’s system notifies the parent, guardian, or other person who has control or charge of a child of seven unexcused days absence for a child shall constitute a separate offense.

Above and beyond these consequences under state law, 7 or more unexcused absences will result in a referral to the Student Attendance Review Board as called for in the Commerce City Student Attendance Protocol.  For out-of-district students, students will be withdrawn from Commerce City Schools to attend their home district upon 7 unexcused absences. 

If you have questions concerning your child, please contact the appropriate school.
