The mission of Morgan County High School(MCHS): A Georgia College and Career Academy is to prepare life-long learners for an ever changing world.
Goal 1:
To implement a focused K-12 vertically aligned college and career ready concept for Morgan County Schools.
Goal 2:
To implement a whole school CCA approach in which 100% of students graduate college and career ready.
Goal 3:
To implement a community of engaged learners who become career pathway completers prepared for high wage, high demand careers and instructed by teachers who are highly qualified and/or have industry experience.
Goal 4:
To create a We are ONE Morgan environment that promotes the implementation of 21st century workplace skills.
Goal 5:
To increase parent engagement by providing multiple outlets through awareness opportunities and programs.
Goal 6:
To implement a Rolling 6 Year Career Plan for 100% of students through a focused Advisement Program.
Goal 7:
To become a Move on When Ready (MOWR) Campus by increasing the percentage of students earning postsecondary credits prior to high school graduation through advanced college credit options. (DE, AP, IB).
Goal 8:
To increase partnerships among postsecondary institutions, local business/industry, and community to increase numbers of students and enhance curriculum and alignment in career pathways linked to the Governor's High Demand Career Initiative.
Goal 9:
To create a continuum of work based learning experiences culminating in a published portfolio on the ONE Morgan “Job Board”.
Goal 10:
To embed science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM) pervasively throughout the curriculum.
Goal 11:
To govern the CCA in an effective and efficient manner through continuous learning and training culminating in a college and career academy producing measurable results.
The vision of this CCA whole school model will be realized when ALL students receive a high school diploma and a technical/college certificate/degree/diploma at the high school graduation ceremony.

What will happen to the Middle School facility if a new one is built on a different site?

The school system is planning a collaborative outreach effort to community groups and student based organizations that may be interested in maintaining the Middle School facility and continuing to offer collaborative community based services at the facility. Organizations such as the local Boys & Girls Club could benefit greatly from use of this facility.
The facility will not be abandoned but will instead be repurposed and we will continue to update the status as we receive feedback from organizations on possible uses for the facility.
of both the Middle School and High School bringing it up to today's code and standards:
Total Estimated Project Cost = $28,924,290
State Entitlement Earning = $ 2,393,491
Local Contribution = $26,530,799
or 92%

of both the Middle School and High School as part of a 6-12 Campus:*
Total Estimated Project Cost = $56,763,398
State Entitlement Earnings = $21,573,620
Other Funding Sources = $ 3,851,163
Local Contribution = $31,338,615
or 55%

*state entitlement funding is reduced if not a grades 6-12 campus.
The replacement scenario includes a new college and career academy and transportation facility.
Questions for Board Guidance

Land Use Feasibility?
Funding Feasibility?
Middle School Relocation Feasibility?
What is ESPLOST?

ESPLOST stands for Education Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax. This represents a one penny tax on sales in Morgan County. Each request for sales tax must be approved by the voters of Morgan County and represents a five year referendum. The continuation of our current ESPLOST will be presented for voter review on the November 3, 2015 ballot and again in November 2020. (Early voting will be available October 12-30)
