All Macon County public schools are SACS accredited.



Donors Choose is a national, non-profit organization designed to help teachers get needed supplies for their classrooms.  Teachers submit proposals to Donors Choose, and Donors Choose reviews the requests and places them on their web site.  At this point, any individual in the world can search the database for proposals they would like to fund in whole or in part.

Once the project is fully funded, Donors Choose ships the requested supplies directly to the teacher.  The teacher sends a thank-you letter to the donor who completed the funding on his/her proposal.  In addition, the teacher sends thank-you letters from each student along with photos of the class using the donated supplies.

It's actually quite fun to see how this works!

We encourage teachers in Macon County to submit proposals to Donors Choose.  Please let Charlie know when your proposal is on the Donors Choose web site, and we will give you some additional publicity on the Macon County web site.  This may help you get a local donor!
