Support Services

The Support Services Team provides support for the daily activities and operations of the school system. We strive to deliver our services in an effective, safe, reliable and efficient manner. The purpose of our work is to create and maintain an accessible, productive and positive, and well-supported atmosphere for teaching and learning.

Support Services is strategically organized into six primary functions to best support the mission of the Barrow County School System.

Communications supports the variety of communication tools used by the district including the website, social media, district app, and emails. Media relations and emergency communications are also supported through this function.

Data & Student Services ensures that student data is accurate, confidential, and used to support learning and works to build overall student health, well-being, and academic growth through nursing, social work supports, and academic research and analysis.

Information Technology Services supports all use of instructional and administrative technology in the district. This includes making sure technology and applications function properly, supporting innovative uses of technology, and helping staff choose the right tools for the job.

Learning Supports aims to provide focus and direction to school staff regarding emotional safety and wellness, collaboration with our community and families, and improvement of overall school climate.

School Safety supports staff in creating a safe environment for learning in all schools. This includes coordination of School Resource Officers, safety training and drills, and safety plans.

Transportation provides transportation of students to and from school, field trips, sporting events, and other extracurricular activities. Ensuring student safety is the primary goal, followed closely by efficient, on-time arrivals.
