The focus of Passport to Excellence is to provide the resources necessary for the academic success of all Chatham County public school students. It is an enhancement of programs already in place, and its purpose is to provide a wide range of educational options, ensuring our public school system is the first choice for all families.
To accomplish this goal the following guiding principles will be used to sustain and improve academic achievement.
· Leverage federal funding to further reduce student/teacher ratio in the most challenged schools
· Assign most effective teachers to schools with the greatest challenges
· Partner with community groups to open additional resource centers (grants / foundations)
· Ensure equity and promote success in all schools.
Working in coalition with community stakeholders, SCCPSS will offer challenging, yet enriching curriculum designed to ignite a passion for learning and teaching at high levels.
