Dear Cavalier Family,
It is going to be another great year at Callaway High School. I am so proud of the hard work and dedication shown everyday by our students, faculty, and staff. I am confident that another winning year is on its way!
In recent years Callaway High School has set many lofty goals and because of the unwavering support of the Troup County Board of Education and the generosity of our community, we have been able to make great progress toward these goals. We opened another new pathway this school year with the introduction of an Audio-Video Technology and Film pathway. Next year will mark the opening of a new Construction pathway. On the horizon, we have the construction of a brand new auditorium and many updates to our athletic facilities including new restrooms and a concession area at our soccer field.
We are proud to report that over the past two years our graduation rate has increased by nearly 12%, achievement scores have increased in all tested subjects, and suspension rates are all time lows. We are also proud to report that our All Pro Auto Group PBIS Attendance and Behavior Incentive Program is off to a great start. With the support of our partners in education such as Statewide Mortgage, our CHS PTO, Community Bank and Trust, Kona Ice, All Pro Auto Group, Mable Smith Sharp and State Farm Insurance the incentive program is already showing great results. For example, after 9 weeks of school we have seen a 49% decrease in unexcused absences this year. We are excited by these and many other successes and look forward to building on our momentum.
I am extremely proud to be a part of the Callaway High School community. I invite each of you to come by and see the new renovations and visit with us any time. On behalf of the faculty and staff of Callaway High School, I want to say thank you for supporting CHS and our students.
