Please take a few moments to complete the Georgia Parent Survey.  The data from this short survey will be used to calculate the School Climate Star Rating.

2016-2017 Student Attendance Protocol

posted Oct 7, 2016, 7:51 AM by Tobie Jones   [ updated Jul 13, 2017, 12:43 PM by Andrew Smalley ]

You are hereby notified of the consequences under Georgia law (O.C.G.A. 20-2-690.1) that state what can occur when a student has accumulated 7 or more absences.

Any parent, guardian, or other person residing in this state who has control or charge of a child or children and who shall violate this Code section shall be  guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction thereof, shall be subject to a fine not less than $25.00 and not greater than $100.00, imprisonment not to exceed 30 days, community service, or any combination of such penalties, at  the discretion of the court having jurisdiction. Each day’s absence from school  in violation of this part after the child’s system notifies the parent, guardian, or other person who has control or charge of a child of seven unexcused days absence for a child shall constitute a separate offense.

Above and beyond these consequences under state law, 7 or more unexcused absences will result in a referral to the Student Attendance Review Board as called for in the Commerce City Student Attendance Protocol.  For out-of-district students, students will be withdrawn from Commerce City Schools to attend their home district upon 7 unexcused absences. 

If you have questions concerning your child, please contact the appropriate school.

Tax Notification Error

posted Apr 22, 2016, 6:51 AM by Andrew Smalley   [ updated Aug 15, 2016, 8:51 AM ]

Important Notification:  I am writing to notify the property taxpayers in Commerce that there is an error on the annual tax assessment notices mailed this week.  On the notices, there is a School Bond #1 at 3.0 mills and a School Bond #2 at 3.0 mills.  That information is INCORRECT.  The Commerce School millage is 19.845 mills and there should be one School Bond #1 at 3.0 mills.  According to Phillip Smith at the Jackson County Tax Assessors Office, there was a duplication error with the school bond tax.  According to Mr. Smith, they more than likely will not send corrected annual assessment notices; however, taxpayers will not be charged twice for the school bond tax when bills are issued.  Thanks in advance for your understanding of this error and for the continued support and quick action by everyone at the tax assessors office. 

If you have questions concerning your property tax notices, please contact the tax assessors office at 706-367-6330
