Can you believe it’s almost the end of the summer and a new school year is fast approaching!
We are currently living in unprecedented and uncertain times as we all settle into our new normal. As parents, we’re having to make very difficult decision about our students and their futures and we as the PTSA understand that!
The PTSA still has work to do even if the school year doesn’t look like it always has! We need your financial support through your membership contribution in PTSA as we continue to support our students, teachers and administration. How will your support help our teens and the school community during these unprecedented times?:
- Purchasing disposable face mask
- Sponsoring virtual on line resources
- Mini-Grants for Teachers
- Teacher, counselor, and staff appreciation
These are just a few examples of your PTSA membership dollars making a direct, positive influence on our every child’s education. We will continue to be flexible as the need of our students, teacher and faculty change.
Please consider joining even at the minimum level of $10! In addition, join on behalf of the students! This allows them the opportunity to apply for a PTSA scholarship their senior year! Again, thank you in advance for your membership which allows our volunteers the opportunity to make Centennial a better place for our kids!

Recap of 2020 GA PTA Day at the Capitol
3/11/2020 4:36 pm
Good Day Leaders, Advocates and Friends!
Georgia PTA held its 2020 PTA Day at the Capitol on February 25th. PTA leaders were empowered by our amazing speakers then together we marched to advocate at the Capitol. See video of our 2020 PTA Day at the Capitol HERE.
Since PTA convened at the Capitol in February, legislation has moved quite a bit in both houses in anticipation of Crossover Day slated for Thursday, March 12th, Day 28 of the legislative session. Crossover Day is the legislative day in the session where a bill must clear its house of origin and have “crossed over” to the other house. Unless attached to another bill that has crossed over, any bills that haven’t crossed over by Thursday are dead for the year.
HB444 has passed both houses and is headed to the Governor’s Desk for his signature. This bill makes sweeping changes to the Dual Enrollment Act in response to the burgeoning costs of the program. It will limit student eligibility, allowable courses and course credits for participating schools in the University of System of Georgia and Technical College System of Georgia. GA PTA is watching this bill.
Regarding the state budget, no compromise was reached between the Senate and House so the bill begins the Conference Committee Process. A Conference Committee is made up of three legislators from each house that convenes to reach a compromise on a bill when the Senate and House cannot agree. The Conference Committee for this bill will be Senators Jack Hill, Butch Miller and Mike Dugan and House Representatives Terry England, Jan Jones and Jon Burns. See a 5-min video of the Georgia’s Legislative Process HERE GA PTA is watching this bill.
The Senate Youth and Education committee offered a substitute for SB386 “voucher bill” which originally expanded the program to include all students with 504 plans and foster students to be eligible for a voucher to attend a private school. The substitute bill, among other things, will limit vouchers to specific 504 plans and creates a list of conditions diagnosed by a physician that would make a student eligible. PTA opposes vouchers that take dollars from public education and don’t require those dollars to have the same accountability that public schools must provide. We urge you to contact your Senator to ask them to vote against this bill. GA PTA opposes this bill.
Regarding vaping legislation, HB864 was amended in the Ways and Means Committee and the substitute will reduce the tax on certain tobacco products by half and fails to sufficiently tax e-cigarettes. Georgia PTA supports equally taxing all tobacco products.
