aNNOUNCEMENT

The school district of Putnam County is in the process of applying for a 21st Century Learning Center Grant. We encourage stakeholders to contact Dr. Melissa Coleman if you would like to provide input on the grant application at mcoleman@my.putnamschools.org.

School Times Implementation Meetings:


There will be three School Times Implementation Meetings around the district this month to discuss the logistics of next year's new school times. The public is invited.

Palatka - in the School Board room on June 20th from 7-8pm
West Putnam - IHS Media Center on June 22nd from 6-7pm
South Putnam - CCHS Media Center on June 26th from 6-7pm





 
On May 2nd, 2017, School Board members voted on the opening and closing times for all the schools in the district. These new times will have the elementary schools starting earlier and secondary schools starting later. Look at the following documents and video on the research behind this schedule.
