Coming Soon: New Student Information System
Thomaston-Upson is currently in the process of migrating to a new web-based student information system (SIS) -- Infinite Campus. Infinite Campus is used by thousands of school districts across the United States. They currently manage data for over 7.3 million students in 44 states and are the largest American-owned SIS provider. The Infinite Campus platform allows school districts to streamline student administration, enable stakeholder collaboration, and individualize instruction. T-U faculty and staff received professional training on using Infinite Campus prior to the start of the 2016-17 school year, and teachers have begun using the system to take attendance and post grades. Parents and students will soon receive log-in information for their respective accounts. The goal is to have all student and parent accounts set up by the end of August. Until that time, any parent needing information about student grades or attendance may contact his/her child’s school.
Welcome to Thomaston-Upson Schools
In 1990, the community voted to consolidate the Thomaston City and Upson County School Systems creating one system that would serve all students within Thomaston and Upson County. The Thomaston-Upson School System opened its doors at the beginning of the 1992-1993 school year. With a little more than 4,200 students in grades PK-12, the Thomaston-Upson School System is small enough to maintain a friendly and safe environment while offering students an array of resources and opportunities often found in only the larger school systems. The Thomaston-Upson School System enjoys a strong connection with the community and views this as crucial to the long-term success of our schools. We encourage students to form bonds with local individuals and groups through community service and community involvement. Our employees are active in local civic organizations and volunteer their time for community events. The unity of school and community enriches our students’ and employees’ lives, improves our schools’ environments, and ultimately creates a community where young people can thrive. Together, our schools and community are working to fulfill the mission of Thomaston-Upson Schools, which is Excellence in education. . .every individual, every day.

As Superintendent of Schools, I value my role as a public servant and will never take the community’s trust for granted. Open and honest, two-way communication is a major goal of mine, and I believe that truth, transparency, and accountability are paramount to my success as Superintendent of the Thomaston-Upson School System. My door is always open, and I hope that you will call, visit, or email me with questions, comments, or concerns. Thank you for your continued support of our local public education system.
