Welcome to the Marietta City Schools Student Resource Center! This page has numerous online resources and other helpful information.
Marietta City Schools wants to partner with you to provide all students with a positive and enriching educational experience.
Beginning in January 2012, all Marietta City School students in grades 1 -12, enrolled in a physical education class taught by a certified physical education teacher, will begin undergoing Georgia SHAPE - a mandated annual fitness assessment launched by Governor Nathan Deal in May 2011. Aggregate fitness assessment results are reported to the Georgia Department of Education, and individual results for students in grades 4 – 12 are provided confidentially to parents. There will be no release of data or information that can be identified with, or linked to, a specific child.
Information for Parents
In accordance with Board Policy JAEB, Marietta City Schools (MCS) is required to conduct age-appropriate training and education for all students (grades PreK-12) regarding what constitutes sexual harassment, the school district's policy and disciplinary consequences for violating the policy, and procedures for reporting student sexual harassment. Preventing and remedying student sexual harassment in schools is essential to ensure a nondiscriminatory, safe environment in which all students can learn.
Training Presentation (Grades 7-12)
The State Board of Education recently approved State School Superintendent Dr. John Barge's plan to phase out the Georgia High School Graduation Test (GHSGT). Students who enter high school in fall 2011 will no longer take the GHSGT in English, math, social studies and science, in order to graduate. This new plan will require students to pass all required courses, and the End-of-Course Tests (EOCT) will now count 20% of a student's final grade, rather than the current 15% weight.
The Move On When Ready Program (MOWR) is a dual enrollment opportunity for Marietta High School students to attend a postsecondary institution on a full-time basis during their junior and/or senior year of high school.
Implementation of the Georgia Performance Standards (GPS) math curriculum at Marietta High School began in 2008-09.

School and Internet Safety
According to The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), "School buses remain one of the safest forms of transportation in the United States." However, proper student behavior while on the bus leads to a safe environment for everyone and plays an important role in bus safety.
