Fannin County Schools is seeking Charter System Status to allow the system the freedom from state rules in regulations to structure educational opportunities that best fit the needs of the children in our community. Charter System status will allow our local schools to make the best decisions possible for the children in our community and provide for more local governance and decision making that can be made at the state level. In exchange for freedom from state rules, the school system will commit to increasing academic performance beyond the current state requirements. All school systems in Georgia must decide to become a Charter System, IE2 System or a Status Quo System by June 2015. A study of the three options determined that becoming a Charter System was the best choice for our community. Specific information concerning our charter system application will be presented at the FCSS Community Meeting #2.
