Putnam County School District educators had the opportunity to visit Freedom High School in Orlando, Florida to see an AVID Showcase. Freedom High School is an AVID Demonstration School with 2,600 students. The school implemented AVID in 2005. During the visit our district team learned how the school implemented AVID Schoolwide. They visited classrooms and listened to a panel of students and teachers talk about how AVID has changed their lives and their school. Aaron Gieselman, Assistant Principal of CCJSHS, said, "I loved the banners that celebrated student achievement all over the school." Our team was so excited to bring back some wonderful ideas of how to make AVID schoolwide a reality here in Putnam County! #ProudtobePCSD

This message is for all Putnam County School District staff and families: Due to the increased speed of the incoming storm, local emergency operations and district officials have made the decision to dismiss students one hour early today, Wednesday, November 9th. Please prepare to pick your child up from school or be at the bus stop one hour early. Please know students who are in 3rd grade or lower will not be released at the bus stop without a parent or guardian present. Those students will be returned to their school for supervision until someone can pick them up. We recognize this may be burdensome for many families, and appreciate your cooperation as we are working to staff and open shelters for our community members. Thank you and stay safe!
The Putnam County School District is proud to announce that our community has passed a monumental bond referendum to create a safe and modern learning environment for every child and teacher in our county. We are grateful for the support of our citizens who have shown great trust and pride in the power of public education. We are eager to begin collaborating with our community members through our Bond Oversight and Design Advisory Committees. From Superintendent, Rick Surrency- “The voters in our communities have spoken, and it is more clear than ever that education is a top priority in Putnam County. This monumental achievement will support our efforts to become the top school district in the state. I am completely overjoyed when I think of the opportunities this will provide our children for many generations to come. Thank you to my staff and the community members who worked on this effort since the inception of our Revitalization Plan. We are absolutely #ProudtobePCSD!”
