"Educating the Emerging Generation"
Cherokee County GA School District
The Cherokee County School Board on Thursday, Jan. 16, 2020 approved the appointment of a longtime CCSD leader as its next Chief Operations Officer.
Dr. Debra Murdock, a past Georgia High School Principal of the Year who currently serves as an Executive Director in the Office of School Operations, will begin leading the division this spring.
Thanks to Delana Crook, Etowah High School Alumnus, who collected and dropped off groceries for our new food pantry.
The Cherokee County School District earned positive credit ratings from the world’s top agencies, benefitting the community’s taxpayers.
Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s financial service companies this month reaffirmed CCSD’s Aa2 and Aa+ ratings, respectively, and awarded Stable outlooks to both, which places the District in an outstanding position for future growth.
