Social Circle, Georgia – March 14, 2018 Superintendent Richard Woods visited Social Circle High School on Monday to hear directly from students, educators, and other stakeholders. He was joined by State Board of Education member Lee Anne Cowart who represents the 10th Congressional District. The purpose of the visit was to observe and explore ways the Georgia Department of Education can be of service to Social Circle City Schools.

Following the hour-long, interactive tour of Social Circle High School’s Career, Technical and Agricultural Education department, Superintendent Woods concluded the visit with high praise.

“I can describe what I saw today in one word – exciting,” said Woods. “I am excited about opportunities for students here and excited about the involvement of the community in the school system. It is evident that you don’t put up barriers. Educators and the community work collaboratively to help each student succeed.”

He continued his remarks, “Social Circle High School has all bases covered.  However, it is nice to see you are not resting on your laurels. You continue to seek the best opportunities for your students whether they plan to join the military, attend technical school or a university, are looking for an internship or a job.”
