CCSD has new bus tracking app, Oconee schools honored for AP

Clarke Co Pre-K through grade 2 students are back in classrooms this week

It is an app the Clarke County School District says can be downloaded from its website: the app allows parents to track their children’s school buses. Athens’ elementary school students—those in Pre K and grades 1 and 2—are returning to classrooms this week after almost a year of learning on-line.

The Edulog Parent Portal mobile app provides the latest information on the planned time and location of the student’s school bus stop. It can show the position of the school bus and give an alert as the bus nears the bus stop.

Download the Edulog Parent Portal from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store. Search for “Edulog Parent Portal” and choose the app with the blue/white icon. Once you have the app downloaded, sign up using your email address. Make sure you have the student name, DOB, school, and student ID number.

From the Oconee Co School District website…

The Georgia Department of Education recently announced its 2021 Advanced Placement (AP) Honor Schools. Both North Oconee High School and Oconee County High School once again received the highest designation as AP Schools of Distinction, as well as several other AP honors.

“North Oconee High School and Oconee County High School have consistently displayed sustained excellence as being named AP Honor Schools for the outstanding academic performance of their advanced placement students,” said Superintendent Jason Branch. “Congratulations to our students for this reflection of their hard work, as well as to their world-class teachers and their parents for supporting them on their academic journeys.”

The College Board’s AP provides students the opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses while still in high school. Students earn college credit, advanced placement, or both for successful performance on AP exams.

“I extend my heartfelt congratulations to this year’s AP Honor Schools,” State Superintendent Richard Woods said. “I commend them for their hard work to build strong Advanced Placement programs and, as a result, provide high-quality opportunities for Georgia students.”
