Information for faculty, families,
Dear 7 Pillars Families,
The reported spread of COVID-19 in the United States continues to be a concern for us all. 7 Pillars Career Academy continues to work to ensure it is prepared to take appropriate actions based on the guidance received from The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Georgia Department of Public Health, Clayton County Public Schools and the Georgia Department of Education. Thank you for your continued patience as we make necessary changes based on information and recommendations from The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Georgia Department of Public Health, Clayton County Public Schools and the Georgia Department of Education.
“Right now, schools’ focus needs to be on the safety of their students and staff,” Superintendent Woods said. “The focus should be first and foremost on health and safety, then on flexible and creative ways to keep learning and growing. It’s common sense: testing and accountability requirements should not place an additional burden on students, parents, and educators during this time, and they will not in Georgia.”
The Georgia Department of Education will seek the maximum authority and waivers afforded by the U.S. Department of Education and other federal agencies to accommodate this ever-evolving situation.
