Fulton County Schools' charter system status officially began on
July 1, 2012. As a charter system, the district is well positioned to drive
system-wide gains in student achievement by unleashing the innovative energies
of our local school leaders and their communities. Please take a moment to view
this video and white paper to learn more about the exciting work that is
happening through Fulton County's charter system status!
The Fulton Charter System website will continue to be an
important resource for timely updates and other announcements related to the
implementation phase, as well as more general information for each of our
school communities. We have also maintained all the documents and resources
shared during the two-year exploration process on this site.
