Why Walton?

The Walton County School District serves around 14,000 Pre-K through 12th grade students in 15 schools. There are 3 clusters each with 1 high school, 1 middle school and 3 elementary schools. The system provides a rigorous academic curriculum with enrichment programs for choral and instrumental music (K-12), band (5-12), visual arts (K-12), foreign languages (6-12) and technology (K-12). There are accelerated programs for high performing students and differentiated curriculum for identified gifted students through combinations of resource, cluster, and/or collaborative instruction K-12, AP classes and advanced content. The system also provides special education programs for students ages 3 through 21. At the secondary level the curriculum includes Career, Technical, JROTC and Agriculture Education pathways. Additionally the district provides after school programs, a before and after school tutorial program and Parent Involvement Coordinators. There are many other services provided to students and their families through the school system.

All classrooms throughout the system have Internet access and wireless connectivity, with several schools having complete wireless coverage. The eSMART (Engaging Students through Mobile Access to Resources and Teaching) one to one initiative is underway, and it is the largest program of its kind among Georgia school systems. The eSMART program provides a mechanism for our students to become literate by 21st century standards. The definition of literacy has expanded to include proficiency in using technology. In this digital age students must graduate with the ability to find information, evaluate it and decide what is important.
