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. 

 Click on the picture to meet this year's SSAC members.

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!


From the Superintendent

Welcome to Newton County School System. Our mission is to provide educational excellence for ALL students. Our students regularly compete at the local, state, and national levels and we pride ourselves as a

district that provides great academic and extracurricular programs for our students. Whether you are a parent, grandparent, resident, or business owner, I encourage you to get involved and support Newton County Schools--where Spirit, Pride, and Excellence make the difference!
