Five Johnson Teachers Win Chromebooks
Floyd County Board of Education approved a phase of 
Chromebook purchases to support more devices in classrooms. This year, the system decided to purchase classroom sets of Chromebooks for teachers for permanent use. Teachers applied for the Chromebooks following a categorical grant application. This is the most equitable, research-based, teacher-driven, student focused method of distribution Floyd County Schools has ever created. Five Johnson Elementary teachers have won classroom sets of Chromebooks!  The lucky winners are: Carol Estes, Holly Sutton, Buffy Davis, Denise Newby, and Kimbrell Raburn. 
With theses Chromebooks and the $16,000 raised at our Color RUN4FUN, we are closer to a one-to-one student to Chromebooks ratio for third through fifth grades.  We will also be able to take care of lots of technology needs for our K - 2nd grades.

New student registration for Floyd County Schools

The new student registration dates for the 2016–2017 school year will be held on three days this year and for the first time registration will take place at the school system central office. The registration dates and times are Monday, July 11, from noon until 5 p.m.; Tuesday, July 12, 1 p.m. to 7 p.m.; and Wednesday, July 13, 7 a.m. to 11 a.m.  


"We want to make registration as simple as possible for our parents new to the system and hope the multiple days and varied times will be more convenient," stated Dr. John Jackson, superintendent of Floyd County Schools. 

New student registration is for students new to the school system or students who have moved to a new attendance area within the system. Students moving to a new school due to advancing to the next grade level in the same attendance area the child attended school last year would not need to register on this date.  An example of a child not needing to attend would be one moving from an elementary school to a middle school in the same attendance area.

What is needed for registration?

  • Parent or legal guardian must accompany the enrolling student
  • Immunization Certificate
  • Eye/ear/dental Certificate
  • Birth Certificate/Social Security Number Card
  • Proof of Residency (a current official utility bill that shows name and address)
  • Record from the child's previous school, if available

Floyd County Schools is focused on “Destination Graduation for every child.”  Recent graduates from Floyd County high schools have gone on to study at University of Georgia, Georgia Tech, Duke, Harvard, Vanderbilt, West Point and other respected institutions of higher learning across the country. Students with a dream and a passion for learning will find caring educators in Floyd County Schools to help them reach their goals and open doors to a brighter future.
