Our goal in making this website available is to help our students by providing useful information to parents, staff, and other stakeholders. Toward this end, the homepage of the website is intended for announcements and recognitions of district-wide interest. Many of the pictures that appear in the website are taken during the monthly meetings of the Board of Education; each month the Board recognizes students and staff who have achieved recognition beyond the district. News stories of school activities and school recognitions are posted on the websites maintained by each school.
SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS FOR DISTRICT AND SCHOOL WEBSITES
There are many pdf files on this website. They are indicated using the icon.

This site uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to deliver secured contents to its users. Sometimes we link to an external site, or I-frame content from another site within one of our pages. This may cause the occasional popup below:
In which case, please click "No" so that all the content is delivered.
LINKS TO THIRD-PARTY WEBSITES
Links to external websites are provided as research and learning tools and are indicated using the icon.
These sites are maintained by their individual hosts; the Muscogee County School District has no responsibility for the content of these sites and does not endorse ideas which may be presented there or any products or services which may be advertised there. Visitors should consult the other sites' privacy policies as we have no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties.
We do not post advertising on this website. If you see a pop-up or pop-under window with advertising or an advertising banner, you will know you are not on the MCSD website. We are still in the process of moving all school and department websites to the MCSD web-hosting server, but a few are still posted on free web-hosting websites with advertising.
CHILDREN'S INTERNET PROTECTION ACT (CIPA) AND ACCEPTABLE USE POLICY (AUP)
All computers on our WAN (wide area network) are filtered according to federal guidelines under N2H2 (CIPA and COPA). Students are required to have AUP forms signed by parents on file in their schools before they can access the Internet. Employees accept the MCSD AUP as a condition of their employment.
Documents officially published by MCSD are sometimes reproduced in whole or in part on this website as a service to our parents and staff. The official copy and version is the one adopted by the Board of Education, and any differences which may exist on this website as a result of human error or other cause are unintentional.
The Muscogee County School District recognizes the privacy concerns of visitors to our website and the importance of protecting the privacy of personally identifiable information. As a general policy, no personally identifiable information, such as a visitor's name, address, email address, credit card number, or telephone number, is collected on our website unless the visitor chooses to provide that information to us.
We do not sell or share email lists or place “cookies” on a visitor’s computer.
For each visitor to our webpages, our server automatically recognizes the domain, service provider, operating system, IP address, and Internet browser. The server also records the usage of pages (hits). This tracking system focuses on overall website activity; it does not track information about individual visitors. We use this data, in aggregate, for our research reports and performance surveys to improve the content of our website.
Safeguards are in place to prevent unauthorized attempts to upload or change website information or otherwise access our website server.
