The Council of Intown Neighborhoods and Schools (CINS), founded in 1978, represents the four elementary schools (Hope/Hill, Lin, Morningside, Springdale Park), two K-8 charter schools (Centennial Academy and Kindezi Old Fourth Ward), a middle school (Inman) and high school (Grady) that serve the cluster of schools known as the Grady Cluster. Each year, CINS awards grants totaling thousands of dollars to teachers in our cluster schools.
CINS mission is to work with Atlanta Public Schools (APS) to foster the development of safe, quality education, in the Grady cluster of schools. To meet this goal, CINS conducts meetings of parents, school administrators, and Board of Education members to explore resources, identify critical issues and seek solutions to problems.
The new school year is sneaking up on us. Check out the APS Back-to-School Bash on July 29 for last-minute immunizations, parent and student resources and some fun free stuff to help your students get ready to learn.
If you missed the May 3rd meeting regarding the Walden Field Design, questions and answers from APS can be found on the following documents:
