Fannin County School System Charter System Initiative

On July 1, 2014, the Fannin County School System entered into a contract with the Georgia Department of Education to become a State Charter System. 

In January 2019, Fannin County had to submit a Charter Renewal Application to the GADOE.  The application contained all of our System Data that showed we had met all the requirements we had committed to when our Charter was approved.  These included academic goals, innovative practices, initiating School Governance Teams, meeting financial guidelines, and running a school system with fidelity. 

Our Charter Application went before the Commission in March.  We were singled out as having an exceptional system. Our new charter was granted and will go into effect on July 1, 2019.
