CEMC Foundation donates to Long County Schools

The Canoochee EMC (CEMC) Foundation, Inc. donated $1250 to the Long County School System to help support the positive behavior interventions and supports (PBIS) program.

The PBIS program helps students stay on track by rewarding good choices.  Long County Schools have been involved in this program since the 2015-2016 school year providing proactive disciplinary strategies to teach students the expectations and rules of the schools they attend.  Good choices and positive behaviors are rewarded with acknowledgement tickets, which can be spent on small toys, pencils, candy bars and other items.  There are larger celebrations as well, where there are bouncy houses, game trucks and larger prizes.  Since the programs was introduced, discipline referrals have decreased.

“We appreciate Canoochee EMC and the Foundation.  These funds will go a long way towards helping our kids be the best they can be,” said Long County School Superintendent David Edwards.

The CEMC Foundation receives funds from Canoochee EMC’s Operation Round Up program, where members of Canoochee round their bill up to the next dollar.  This small change is then used to help fund worthy efforts throughout CEMC’s service territory.   Over $1.4 Million has been donated throughout the coverage area of CEMC since 2001.

“Canoochee EMC and the CEMC Foundation are proud supporters of the Long County School System.  This is not possible without the donations from the members of Canoochee EMC,” said Joe Sikes, Communications Specialist for Canoochee EMC.

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.
