Driver’s Education
The Cumberland County Schools offer Driver Education after school hours during the Fall and Spring semesters and two summer sessions are offered annually.   Check  Dates to Remember for the dates that the sessions will be offered for the coming school year.  The practical or behind-the-wheel phase of the course is offered after school hours and/or on Saturday during the school year and concurrent with the classroom phase in the summer.

Request Transcripts/Student Records Online
The Cumberland County School’s Student Records Center is responsible for the permanent archiving of student cumulative records of former CCS students. Cumulative records are maintained for students who attended CC from the late 1880’s to present day. Records for each CCS school the student attended may include a listing of classes completed, grades, test scores, immunization records and graduation status.

SAT Information
Cumberland County Schools prepares its students to take the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) as a means to measure their academic preparedness for post-secondary studies.  Most colleges use the SAT as part of their admission process.  The SAT measures a student’s academic skills that have been developed over a period of time, not just during their high school years. 

Scholarship Information
College expense can be a daunting obstacle when planning for post secondary education.  Find out more information about applying for scholarships on the Counselors Website.

Student Acceptable Use Policy
Before a student may use the Internet for any purpose, the student’s parent must be made aware of the possibility that the student could obtain access to inappropriate material. The parent and student must sign a consent form acknowledging that the student user is responsible for appropriate use of the Internet and consenting to monitoring by school system personnel of the student’s e-mail communication and use of the Internet.

2016-2017 Student Code of Conduct
Cumberland County Schools’ mission is to provide a safe and caring learning environment in which every student develops the skills and knowledge necessary to pursue a productive life, to be successful in a diverse and global society, and to empower students to become lifelong learners.

2016-2017 Student Code of Conduct – Spanish
Las Escuelas del Condado de Cumberland tienen la misión de proporcionar un ambiente de aprendizaje seguro y solidario en el que cada estudiante pueda desarrollar las habilidades y conocimientos necesarios para llevar una vida productiva y tener éxito en una sociedad diversa y global, y convertirlos en aprendices de por vida.
