  2020 Census Challenge to Improve Response Rates

 As Superintendent of Coffee County Schools, I would like to challenge you to complete your 2020 Census. While Alabama sits at 51.7 percent across the state in response rates, we must continue to bring awareness to Alabamians that being counted will help shape our future.

  

Responding to the 2020 Census is easy in one of three ways:

 

  • Internet - my2020census.gov
  • Telephone - (844) 330-2020
  • Mail-in questionnaire (this may have arrived at the residence if the household has not responded, or someone may deliver the questionnaire to their home, or call the number above to request the questionnaire.

Coffee County Parent Letter: School Closure Update April 2, 2020

Letter from our Superintendent Regarding School Closings (Presione aquí para leer la versión en Español)

 

Dear Parent and/or Guardian,


At the end of school today, Tuesday, March 17, 2020, Coffee County Schools will be closed until Monday, April 6, 2020 for students. In this unprecedented time, there is certainly the possibility that the closure could be extended. We want to provide you with the actions Coffee County Schools are taking and our plan at this time.


School Activities/Extra-Curricular Events


All events are postponed at this point (Tuesday ballgames are still on). We understand that this is especially disappointing to our seniors. We are hopeful that some of these activities can be rescheduled when school resumes. No students are to be on campus for any reason during the closure, except for lunch pick up. 

Communication


Since there are no protocols in place that address this type of school closure, we are adjusting our plans daily. We will be communicating with students, parents, and the community through the school and district Facebook pages, and updates on our school and district websites, as well as our mass communication system - SchoolCast.

Feeding Program


Beginning Thursday, March 19th we will be preparing lunches for those students that wish to participate in the feeding program during this school closure. We will have distribution sites throughout our school zones as well as on our school campuses. These distribution sites will be announced later this week. Distribution will be through curbside pick-up from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm at each site. We will not provide lunches the week of March 30th through April the 3rd since this is our Spring Break week. We will make plans to continue to provide meals if school does not resume on April 6th

Cleaning and Sanitizing

During the closure, our campuses and buses will be cleaned and sanitized according to protocols and recommendations from public health officials.


Final Thoughts


I hope and pray that all of you stay safe and well during these unprecedented times. We will continue to vigilantly monitor the ever-changing developments and pledge to do our very best to ensure the safety and welfare of our students and employees.


With Warm Regards,

 

 

Kevin Killingsworth,

Superintendent

COFFEE COUNTY SCHOOLS

 Motto

"Where Great Things Happen Every Day!"

Statement of Purpose

The primary purpose of Coffee County Schools is to provide all students with a rich variety of educational experiences and opportunities. Our system strives to meet the needs of students with diverse learning styles and a wide range of abilities and goals. Coffee County School System believes that all students can become contributing members of today's society, and it is our responsibility to help students build lives so they ensure success for college or career readiness. The system promotes academic achievements, diversity, equity, athletics, and extracurricular activities throughout all grade levels within the system.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Coffee County School System is to provide its students with the skills necessary to become well-rounded, productive citizens. To ensure this, the system provides a challenging curriculum presented by a dedicated staff in a safe, clean, and stimulating environment. Therefore, we feel the responsibility for educating young minds must be shared among parents, educators, and the students. The students will benefit when there is a clear understanding of each participant's role in the educational process. However, the student will suffer if any person fails to take that responsibility seriously.

Vision

Coffee County Schools strives to provide an excellent education so that all students are empowered to reach their maximum potential.

Beliefs

Educational decisions should be based on the best interests of students.

All students deserve educational opportunities that prepare them to compete at a local, national, or global level.

All students have the right to an adequate and equitable education.

Our system believes that parents are their children's first and most important teacher. Our system works diligently to actively engage, encourage, and support parents as advocates, policymakers, advisors, and active participants in the education of their children.

A variety of extracurricular activities are available for students. Participation in extracurricular activities can contribute to students becoming more well-rounded individuals. In addition, involvement in extracurricular activities may lead to scholarships, honors, and better job opportunities.

A safe and disciplined environment is important for learning to occur. Coffee County School System considers self-discipline as a learning process whereby the individual progressively learns to develop habits of self-control and recognizes his or her own responsibilities to society.  

A commitment to continuous improvement is imperative for students to successfully become confident, self-directed learners.
