A publication of the Savannah Chatham County Public School System's Budget Services Department, this information aims to help parents and the community understand the budget development process and other key financial issues.
With a wide range of academic options that prepare students for college and a career, the Savannah-Chatham County Public School System (SCCPSS) is moving forward! More and more families are looking to SCCPSS for their educational needs. Students enjoy classroom lessons that inspire critical thinking, offer project based learning, and provide exposure to real world career opportunities. At the conclusion of the 2018 school year, the 2018 Graduating Class earned more than $43 million dollars in scholarship awards and nearly 1,900 graduates received their diplomas in advance of moving on to some of the most prestigious universities across the nation. Advanced Placement, Gifted Education Programs, Choice Programs, and Dual Enrollment Programs are a few examples of the many options available throughout the district that contribute to sustained academic growth and preparation for college or a career.
As the 10th largest school system in the state of Georgia, our school district has a large footprint. Geographically, we cover 426 square miles and now have schools from Tybee Island all the way to Bloomingdale. Every school has its unique identity and represents the many communities we serve. Our enrollment currently hovers close to 38,000 students and with the continued expansive growth in western Chatham County, we anticipate more families coming into the district to receive the high quality educational services we offer. Our work to provide those services is supported by more than 5,600 employees that make up Savannah-Chatham Public Schools. Our dedicated staff and faculty are working in departments that range from transportation and food services to specialized learning and instructional technology. While there are many more departments that make up our school district, by far the largest employee base includes our 3,000+ classroom teachers who are working every day to provide teaching experiences that support the leaders of tomorrow. We are proud that 99% of our educators are classified as “Highly Qualified” and bring their work experience from across many backgrounds and specialized areas of expertise. Our focus on developing a premiere workforce that not only represents our classroom educators, but all employees of the school system, remains one of our primary focus areas as we continue to execute the strategic plan of the school district.
