Annual Verification

Attention Pine Ridge Parents!

All parents of returning students who who attended Pine Ridge or any DeKalb County School (Middle and High) last year MUST upload current proof of resident in the Campus Parent Portal before school starts. Each year, you must submit current proof of residency and your ID.

If you do not have bills in your name, you must complete an affidavit.  Affidavits are in the silver mailbox in front of the school.  Please see attachment as to how to upload affidavit.

Affidavit Upload Examples.pdf 

In order to meet your child's teacher on Open House, you must present the approval email stating that your Annual Verification has been approved. Now that we are paperless, you do not bring items to the school.  Go into your Campus Parent Portal and upload your documents there if you already have a Parent Portal.  If not, you must set up the portal then complete your Annual Verification.

Mission & Vision

The vision of the DeKalb County School District is to inspire our community of learners to achieve educational excellence. Our mission is to ensure student success, leading to higher education, work, and life-long learning. We are making this vision and mission a reality – every day, in every classroom throughout the District.

Through community forums, focus groups, listening sessions, and more, we have engaged our stakeholders, refined our objectives, honed our procedures, and formulated a robust, highly-structured yet agile and adaptive strategic plan. We are pleased with the progress we have made thus far, and excited about the future – of our District, our community, and, most importantly, the 100,000+ students who daily bring to us their limitless potential.

The District has created performance measures, targets, and initiatives to ensure success in each goal area. A monitoring and data collection process has been developed, and rigorous progress check procedures have been implemented. At the local level, on-going training sessions are offered to all principals in order to support the work of aligning, refining, monitoring, and evaluating the continuous improvement efforts of each individual school.

As a community of learners, we are committed to excellence in everything we do – within the classroom and throughout the District. This continuous improvement process permeates each aspect of our Strategic Plan, and we are honored to partner with you to make it a reality for all.
