Etowah County Schools provide a rigorous, relevant education in a safe, student-centered environment that produces college and career ready graduates who contribute responsibly in a global community.

Welcome to Etowah County Schools

The 2017 Eclipse Across America will happen on Monday, August 21, 2017. Etowah County will experience a mid-eclipse at approximately 1:33:03 pm CDT and 95.5% of the sun will be blocked. Etowah County teachers and students will have the opportunity to experience an extremely rare event-a total solar eclipse. Teachers across the district have prepared lessons related to the eclipse to make this special event a learning experience for all students. Each Etowah County school will provide students opportunities to participate in the eclipse phenomena. Participation will vary by school from going outdoors to view the eclipse with official glasses to watching the live NASA eclipse broadcast. All students viewing the eclipse outdoors must have a signed permission slip and approved pair of solar glasses.

Parents may check students out for the purpose of supervising their own child’s viewing at home or in another location. These checkouts will be counted as excused.

As the Superintendent, I invite you to explore our site to learn about the numerous opportunities and services we provide to over 8500 students learning and growing in Etowah County Schools. I encourage you to become involved in your child’s education - both inside and outside of the classroom. Your involvement will help your sons and daughters be more successful in all that they do.

Educators play a critical role of teaching knowledge and skills, but children’s attitudes toward school and their habits of studying, reading and learning, are largely developed at home. Our children need all of our support to reach their potential as great thinkers, innovators, and leaders. The commitment we make now will benefit our state and country as they become citizens of the world, competing, and collaborating in an ever-changing global environment.

There are many ways to be involved with your child’s education. This includes not only establishing routine homework habits, but also making time to get to know your child’s teachers, administrators, and other staff members at his or her school. Ask how you can become involved in your child’s educational experience.

We are dedicated to serving our students. Please join me in preparing our children to become successful citizens!

Sincerely,

Alan Cosby, Ed.D.

Superintendent
