2015 - 2016 School Calendar

The Mission of The McMinn County School System is to equip students for life-long learning through academics, accountability, and learning experiences. We are committed to assist our students in achieving their greatest potential to adapt and adjust to an ever-changing world. We believe education is the shared responsibility of the student, home, school, and community. We strive to recognize talents, diversity, and individual needs of all students thus enabling them to become productive and contributing citizens.

Meningococcal bacteria can cause severe disease, including meningitis and sepsis, resulting in permanent disabilities and even death, but can be prevented through the use of vaccines. The CDC recommends vaccinations beginning at age 11, or earlier for certain children at increased risk for the disease. Please discuss with your Health Care Provider or the local Health Department to determine if the vaccine is appropriate for your student. More information, including causes, symptoms and means by which it is spread can be found at www.cdc.gov/meningococcal/index.html 

As required by Public Chapter 892, follow the link for information for state mandated assessments for the 2015-16 school year.
