Meet the Superintendent's Student Advisory Council


The purpose of the Superintendent's Student Advisory Council (SSAC) is to act on behalf of all students of the Newton County School System; SSAC representatives serve as advocates for ALL students. The SSAC collaborates to improve the educational process and school environments while focusing on the development of a "college-going" atmosphere in all schools. The SSAC aids in the communication among students, parents, and the community. SSAC members are ambassadors of the school system.

Meet the 2014 NCSS Leadership Team



It’s the goal of Newton County School System to ensure that each and every student is “College & Career Ready” upon graduation. As a result, we try to foster a college atmosphere in school to get students even as young as kindergarten talking about the possibility of attending college. One of the ways we do this is by giving students information about our own college history! So meet the 2014 Leadership Team of Newton County Schools and find out where we attended school and why; what our majors were; what types of degrees we hold; and even our favorite college memories.

Just click on the picture above to read all about your Newton County School System Leadership Team!
