The level of interest, support and involvement of parents and community members directly impacts the effectiveness of the Long County School System.  We hope to bridge this gap by better communicating with all stakeholders in an effort to meet the educational needs of all students.  Please take the time to explore this website and provide feedback so we can better serve the needs of our students and community.


The Long County School System has a Pre-Kindergarten Program, Smiley Elementary School serving grades K-2, McClelland Elementary School serving grades 3-5, Long County Middle School serving grades 6-8, Long County High School serving grades 9-12, and an Alternative School Program serving grades 6-12.  Long County is one of the fastest growing counties in Southeast Georgia.  The Long County School System currently serves approximately 3400 students.

Governor Nathan Deal signed House Bill 91 into law on March 30, 2015.  The law contains provisions for students no longer enrolled in the school system to petition for a diploma if their sole reason for not receiving a diploma was due to not passing any part of the required graduation tests at the time of enrollment. Please use the form below to formalize the petition process.

DISCUSSION OF STRATEGIC WAIVER SCHOOL SYSTEM APPLICATION
​​The Long County Board of Education announced its intent to designate Long County Schools as a Strategic Waiver School System at the March 10, 2015, Board Meeting. The local Board of Education submitted a letter to the State Board of Education indicating the decision to apply for “Strategic Waiver School System” flexibility. All school districts in Georgia were required to declare a flexibility option by June 30, 2015, in order to continue receiving waivers from the State Board of Education. The flexibility allows districts to be innovative in exchange for increased academic accountability and allows the state to take over the governance of schools that fail to meet performance targets after five years.

The application serves as a performance contract with the State Board of Education (SBOE) and grants the district freedom from specific Title 20 provisions, SBOE rules, and Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) guidelines with the intent to improve student performance. One step in the development of this contract is to obtain community input at a public hearing. A draft application is ready for public review. The details of the draft may change following the local public review or as a result of discussions with the state officials during the submission process.
