Garrett County Public Schools recently launched a new website. The new site is located at www.garrettcountyschools.org or users will be redirected if logging into the former website www.ga.k12.md.us. The new website features an updated look with better menu options and an easy-to-use navigation bar located at the top of the home page. The new site also features popular web links under the Resources section located on the left-hand side of the home page, and a rotating slideshow of pictures featuring Garrett County Public Schools students, staff, and events.

Also featured on the home page are recent items of interest for parents, students, staff and the community. This includes press releases and the latest school system news. Website visitors can also sign up to receive press releases by e-mail, which feature student and staff accomplishments and general informational items.  To sign up for Garrett County Public Schools press releases, look for the” Stay Connected” section on lower right-hand side of the home page and enter your email address.

The website will still be used as a primary notification tool when any changes in the school schedule occur. Located at the top of the home page is a search function users can select when looking for specific information on the site. The site also has a Contact Us form for users to send comments or questions to Public Information staff. The Contact Us form is located at both the top and bottom of the homepage. Coming soon is a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) page which will include up to date relevant questions and answers to common questions about the school system.
