Cobb Schools, MUST Extend Partnership to Feed Students
Food Pick-up Locations

During week two of Cobb Schools’ partnership with MUST Ministries, the district and non-profit have built a long-term solution to provide students with a five-day supply of breakfasts and lunches at eight school locations on Mondays from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The first day of the meal distributions will be on Monday, March 23. The school locations selected for the meal distributions include schools with more than 50% free and reduced lunch populations.

Cobb Schools Food Service Department staff will make the food as it is provided by the district and MUST volunteers will distribute to students curbside. The meals can only be served to Cobb County students under 18 years of age, and students must be physically present.

The weekly breakfast and lunch distributions can be sustained through the rest of the 2019–2020 school year or until Cobb Schools re-opens. However, MUST needs volunteers to help by giving food donations and to sign up here to help with food distributions at schools. Please join us as we help our community in need. 

Breakfast and lunch school distribution locations from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. are as follows:

  • Acworth Elementary 
  • Bryant Elementary
  • Campbell High School
  • Compton Elementary
  • East Cobb Middle
  • Garrett Middle 
  • Osborne High
  • Riverside Intermediate 

The new school locations will replace sites where food boxes were provided this week. Please visit the CobbCast website to learn more.

CCRPI

On October 25 at 10:00 a.m., the Georgia Department of Education released the 2019 College and Career Readiness Performance Index (CCRPI) scores. Congratulations to Harrison High School for a 96.3% CCRPI score! We are up 2.3 points from last year and tied for the highest score for all high schools in the Cobb County School District. Harrison is also tied for 5th place among all schools in the district. Also, Harrison is tied for 4th place out of 677 high schools in the state of Georgia. For another year in a row, our students have scored 100 out of 100 maximum points for content mastery with the Georgia Milestones Assessment System for English, math, science, and social studies. This score also includes improving performance among all students, including our subgroups. 

Thank you to our faculty and staff for maintaining a strong academic culture and to our students for keeping their learning at the forefront while also balancing other parts of their high school experience. Thank you as well to our parents and to our feeder schools for helping prepare our students for academic success and supporting a community of learning for all students. Our 96.3% score represents a team effort and more importantly… another reminder of the supportive community in which we live. Congratulations again, Hoya Nation! We are proud of our Hoyas! You can read more about our score on the CCSD press release
