New to Coweta Schools?

Welcome!

If you came from another district where your student had an IEP, please reach out to us after you've registered your child. If you have a copy of your child's records, we can make a copy for our records. If you don't have your child's records, we can request them from your child's previous school. Please contact Trudy.Woodall@Cowetaschools.net.
