CCSD Message to High School Students CCSD_Identity_stacked_CMYK

Dear #CCSDfam 

We are sending the message below to all of our high school students, many of whom have reached out to us with concerns about the issues of diversity, equity and tolerance.  We’re sharing this message with not only the parents of our high school students, but also the parents of all of our students, so you will be aware of its contents and can consider having a conversation at home about this topic.  We are very aware of where our role ends and where yours begins, and that we must work together to help our students succeed.

2020 Census: It's Not Too Late to Be Counted census

If you have not completed your 2020 U.S. Census Survey, there is still time!  95% of households receive their census invitation in the mail (these were sent in March, with reminders sent in April).  As of June 14, 62% of Cherokee County residents have responded (compared to 57% in Georgia and 61% across the U.S.).  Every household has the option of responding online, by mail or by phone.  Households that have not responded may receive a visit from a census worker between Aug. 11 and Oct. 31 to help complete the form and ensure everyone is counted.  For more about the census and how the data is used, go to

CCSD Message: Budget Update I-1 ALL DRAFT

Dear #CCSDfam, 

In any other time, a potential 11% cut in State education funding would not be a cause for optimism, but we are in challenging times.  As the initial forecast called us to brace for a 14% cut and a $32 Million loss for our School District, we are grateful for the 3% difference now projected by the Governor.

Message from Your New Principal! matt freedman


Dear Little River Elementary Families,

It is with excitement that I write this letter as the newly appointed principal at Little River Elementary School for the 2020-2021 school year.   As a new member of the Little River Elementary School Family, I look forward to collaborating with parents and community members to continue the tradition of community engagement, collaboration, and innovative practices.

I am originally from Rochester, New York and have lived with my family in Cherokee County for the past 14 years.   I have been dedicated to the field of education for 19 years.  During this time, my experiences include teaching second and third grade, working with students with special needs in a variety of settings, and being an administrator for the past 10 years in Cobb County, Marietta City Schools and Cherokee County.  My most recent experience is at Woodstock Elementary School where I have served as the principal for the past two years. 

Along with the dedicated teachers and staff, I will work hard to continue the success at Little River Elementary School by building strong relationships with all stakeholders.  Our greatest initiative for the upcoming year will be to continue to provide a positive and challenging environment for students where 21st century skills are used to maximize learning.

I look forward to getting to know you and working to make Little River Elementary the best school for your child.


Matt Freedman


Little River E.S.
