In response to the ongoing social unrest around the country, the Barrow County School System would like you, our community, to know that we care deeply about our students, families, and staff. Our sincerest hope is that you and your children feel valued and respected at BCSS. At this time, we particularly want our Black students, families, and staff to feel supported and know that you have a voice in our organization.
We strongly believe that racism is wrong and unacceptable in any form. As educators we believe that education is the great equalizer. Teaching and learning are fundamentally tied to positive and enduring relationships. Racism cannot be a part of any entity dedicated to education. The Barrow County School System is committed to listen, learn, provide support, and engage in the work necessary to continue to contribute to making meaningful change.
Our System Vision is Boldly Committed to Student Success. This means every student, every day, in every way possible, without exception. We can tolerate nothing less.
