Federal Programs & Special Projects


Annually, Camden County Schools (CCS) invites stakeholders to provide input into the upcoming year's Comprehensive Local Improvement Plan (CLIP) components.


Throughout the school year, CCS conducts a comprehensive needs assessment which includes a review of student achievement, stakeholder survey results, Student Information System reports, behavioral data, classroom observation data, and program evaluation outcomes. Results of this needs assessment are used to revise the components of the Comprehensive Local Education Agency Improvement Plan (CLIP), which is submitted to the Georgia Department of Education each year.  The CLIP documents the district's planned use of federal and state funds to promote student achievement and to provide professional learning for staff.


All stakeholders are invited to provide input on the Comprehensive Local Improvement Plan, which can be found on the Federal Programs page of this website. The window for soliciting input will close June 19. Questions, feedback, and suggestions may be submitted to Dr. Denise Cato, Director of Federal Programs and Special Projects, via email (dcato@camden.k12.ga.us) or telephone (912-729-5687).
