Summer Break Updates

Please read below for the latest updates from Barrow County School System.

New Bell Schedule & School Start Time

BCSS bell schedules and transportation options for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year have been evaluated by a study committee and a consultant group over the course of the past school year. Two scenarios were presented to the Board of Education last month with a recommendation for Scenario 1.

On June 2, the Board of Education approved the recommendation and adopted Scenario 1. This will change the start times for schools next year. See the details.
