COVID-19 Coronavirus Updates
Fulton County Schools works daily to ensure the health and well-being of our students and staff by developing, implementing, and delivering school health services throughout the year. Occasionally, extraordinary efforts are required to meet particular challenges, such as the recent concerns about coronavirus (COVID-19).
We are currently following the lead of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Georgia Department of Public Health (GDPH), the Fulton County Board of Health (FCBOH) as well as other local, state, and federal agencies to make sure we have the most up-to-date information available. This page has been established to provide these resources and communications from the district to our community members.
Building the Bridge to Success
Fulton County Schools is focused on recovery and transformational student achievement, growth, and success for the future. The district’s three-year comprehensive plan to do this is called “Bridge to Success.” Consisting of several strategic goals and program initiatives, the Bridge to Success plan aims to address the impact of the pandemic on lost instruction and learning, and ensure the safety of students, staff, and families. Leveraging more than $168 million dollars of federal Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funds, the district will implement and execute the plan which incorporates evidence-based interventions to support accelerated learning opportunities for students, and ensure they record the highest academic growth averages in the Metro Atlanta area.
