HOPE REACH Scholarship

ATTENTION ALL BUSINESS PARTNERS. We are looking for area businesses to support the HOPE REACH Scholarship for the 2018-2019 school year. Each year, Laurens County can select up to three upcoming 8th graders to receive this honor. The school system is responsible for raising $1500 of the scholarship per student through partnerships with local businesses.The state will fund the remaining $8500 per student. In order for the student to receive the scholarship to pursue post-secondary options upon graduation, he/she must maintain acceptable grades, attendance, and behavior. If you are interested in helping us grow tomorrow's leaders, please complete the form and return by June 30, 2018. As always, thanks for your support.

Important Information Regarding Revised Promotion/Retention Policy for 3rd/5th/8th Grade Students


The Laurens County Board of Education has revised its Promotion/Retention Policy for 3rd, 5th, and 8th grade students.  While Georgia Law requires all students to be tested in grades 3-8 on the Milestones, that one test will no longer determine if a child is retained.  HOWEVER, the child's performance on the test continues to be important as it is one of several factors considered together to determine if a child is ready to move to the next grade level.  

If you have questions, please feel free to contact the school as always.
