  • Parents’ Right To Know

    Dear APS Parents and Guardians:

    All schools are required by federal law under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965(ESEA), to let you know about your child’s teachers’ qualifications.  We want you to know that it is your right to request the following information about your child’s teachers’ training and credentials:

    • Whether the teacher met the state requirements from the Georgia Professional Standards Commission for certification for the grade level and subject area which they teach;
    • Whether the teacher is teaching under an emergency or other temporary status through which Georgia qualification or certification criteria have been waived;
    • What undergraduate or graduate degree(s) the teacher holds; including graduate certificates and additional degrees, and major(s) or area(s) of concentration; and whether your child is provided services by paraprofessionals, and if so, their qualifications.

    Please know that the staff at your child’s school is committed to helping your child reach his or her highest academic potential throughout their school career.  That commitment includes making sure that all of our teachers and paraprofessionals are highly skilled and are providing quality instruction to your child.

    If you wish to request information concerning your child’s teachers’ qualifications, please contact your child’s principal, by phone or email, using the information provided on your school’s website.

  • Infinite Campus Parent and Student Portal

       Click Logo to Login

    Parents of students in grades K–12 have access to class schedules, attendance records and grades by Campus Portal for Parents (CPP) which is an easy-to-use, secure communications tool. Additionally, CPP enables parents to verify household information, including their email address, home address and telephone numbers.
    Contact your child’s school to get your CPP activation key. Parents are required to  request the CPP activation key in person. To ensure that all student information remains secure, parents must provide a valid photo ID (driver’s license, state ID card, or passport) before receiving the CPP activation key.  Once parents receive the activation key, they can

  • The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords parents and students who are 18 years of age or older ("eligible students") certain rights with respect to the student's education records.  These rights include the right to provide written consent before the school discloses personally identifiable information (PII) from the student's education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without con­sent.

    One exception which permits disclosure without consent is disclosure to school officials with legitimate educational interests.  A school official is a person employed by the school as an ad­ministrator, supervisor, instructor, or support staff member (including health or medical staff and law enforcement unit personnel) or a person serving on the school board.  A school official also may include a volunteer or contractor outside of the school who performs an institutional service of function for which the school would otherwise use its own employees and who is under the direct control of the school with respect to the use and maintenance of PII from education records, such as an attorney, audi­tor, medical consultant, or therapist; a parent or student volunteering to serve on an official committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance committee; or a parent, student, or other volunteer assisting another school official in performing his or her tasks.  A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an educa­tion record in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibility.

    Also, upon request, the school discloses education records without consent to officials of another school district in which a student seeks or intends to enroll, or is already enrolled if the disclosure is for purposes of the student’s enrollment or transfer. 

    For more information about Student Records and disclosures, including directory information, please refer to the Student Handbook, and Board Policy JR and Administrative Regulation JR-1(R).

Mrs. Tiauna Crooms, Principal
As I enthusiastically accept this opportunity to advance our school, it is my personal and professional pledge to model, inspire, challenge, support and encourage every member of our school family to remain focused on student success.  This success is inclusive of academic achievement and character development; it is also guided by the principle that no one rises to low expectations.  
     All leadership transitions come with challenges, learning, and growth. Joseph E. Brown Middle School has the remarkable potential to develop life-long learners and produce forward thinkers that can make an impressive contribution to our society.  
     The mission of Atlanta Public School is to educate all students through academic excellence, preparing them for success in life, service and leadership. Therefore, our purpose is clear:  To ensure that all students will graduate with competitive 21st century skills and abilities.  
     The strategy is simple: Teach our students as if they are our own children. Armed with passion and purpose, I am challenged yet motivated to lead the school-based community and engage all stakeholders in the realization of the district’s goal for our students as we strategically and urgently focus on continuous school improvement.
