Government

Coweta was formed in 1825 from land ceded from the Creek Indians and settled predominately by people arriving from the Carolinas and Virginia. Coweta has eight municipalities which have their own governments and service operations: Newnan (county seat), Senoia, Grantville, Palmetto, Moreland, Turin, Sharpsburg, and Haralson.

Coweta County is well-represented in the Georgia legislature by two representatives and one senator and in the U.S. Congress by one representative and two senators.

Coweta County
Coweta County operates its business from the Coweta County Administration Building and from the Coweta County Justice Center, home to the offices of the Clerk of the State Court, Clerk of Superior Court, District Attorney, County Solicitor, and the Magistrate Court. The 130,000 square-foot Justice Center, within easy walking distance of the Newnan courthouse square, features eight courtrooms. The 1904 Courthouse that the Justice Center replaced has been recently renovated for use for other public purposes including the County Vistors Center.

The county is governed by a five-member elected Board of Commissioners. Governmental operations are administered by the county administrator’s office.

Education

The Coweta County School System
 www.cowetaschools.org.

With the opening of Coweta County’s newest school (Brooks Elementary, in northwestern Coweta) in the 2009-10 academic year, the Coweta County School System serves 23,000 students in 31 schools in one of the fastest-growing Georgia counties.

Coweta County has three Georgia Teachers of the Year—more than any other state school system—and 13 Coweta County teachers have been selected as a semi-finalist, finalist or winner of the Georgia Teacher of the Year since 1986.

Several Coweta County schools have been named State Schools of Excellence and national Blue Ribbon schools. In 2008, Northgate High School was named a School of Excellence for Georgia’s 8th District, placing it in the top 20 to 25 out of more than 1,800 public schools statewide. Arbor Springs Elementary School was named a 2007 Georgia School of Excellence, Arnco-Sargent Elementary School was a 2006 honoree, and Jefferson Parkway Elementary School was a 2005 honoree.

Coweta County students’ average overall SAT score was 1515 in 2008, above the national average of 1511 and the state of Georgia’s average of 1466. Coweta County’s overall averages on the state Criterion Referenced Competency Test (CRCT) scores are consistently above Georgia averages as well. In 2008, Coweta students in grades 1 through 8 had higher average passage rates in 30 out of the 36 grade and subject areas covered by the exam.

Coweta County Schools and the Coweta community are pioneers in developing charter schools in Georgia. In 1999, a partnership between the school system, West Central Technical College, and the local business community created the Central Educational Center (CEC), a career-and-technology based charter school. CEC was named a 2005 National Model High School, and it is the archetype for the Career Academy in Georgia, the fastest-growing charter school model in the state.

Coweta schools strive to offer a wide range of academic and extracurricular opportunities to meet the needs and ambitions of individual students. In addition to a wide range of Advanced Placement courses and athletic activities, The Centre for Performing and Visual Arts provides students and the community with a center of accomplished artistic programs, including performances and master classes with professional artists from outside the community. The Centre includes a 1,000-seat, state-of-the-art performance hall, recital and rehearsal space, and several visual arts galleries, and has become the nucleus of an expanding fine arts curriculum in Coweta’s schools, as well as a center of community life.

To keep up with the county’s growth, the community has supported three sales taxes for school construction and improvements since 1997. Welch Elementary School and Lee Middle School opened in August 2007. In 2008, Coweta’s three high schools—Northgate, East Coweta and Newnan High School—each opened new Ninth-Grade campuses to expand the capacity of each school and to provide dedicated on-campus facilities and programs for new freshmen students. In 2009, the school system’s next school–Brooks Elementary–opened on Jim Starr Road, in northern Coweta County.

Private Schools

Coweta County boasts several private institutions with excellent academic programs including the Heritage School and the Carolyn Barron Montessori School.

The Heritage School is a college preparatory, independent day school serving students from three years of age through 12th grade with a broad curriculum that stresses individual attention in a nurturing environment. Established in 1970, a primary goal at all levels of the school is the development of critical thinking skills. A rich array of educational options ensures that every student’s potential is recognized and challenged. For more information, call (770) 253-9898.

The Carolyn Barron Montessori School offers a sensibly structured system that allows students to develop at their own pace, using their individual abilities with the guidance of formally trained teachers and the use of specially designed materials. The Montessori classroom is tailored to the size, pace, and interest of the students. Named in memory of a beloved member of the Newnan community, the Carolyn Barron Montessori School strives to provide a carefully planned, stimulating environment that assists children in developing skills and ideas that are essential to creative thinking and learning. Programs for children age 18 months to 14 years are available. Call (770) 253-2135 for further information or visit the website at www.cbms.net.


There are also several church-affiliated schools serving students in the formative ages through the primary grades.

Higher Education

West Georgia Technical College
West Georgia Technical College is an important part of growing post-secondary options in Coweta County. Coweta County is served by the Coweta campus of West Georgia Technical College which offers associate degrees, diplomas and technical certificates of credit, as well as adult education/GED preparation, continuing education, corporate training and assistance through Georgia QuickStart for local industry.

The College specializes in occupational preparation in the major areas of business information, trades and technical, health occupations, and personal services, and most programs can be completed in two years or less. For a detailed look at the programs of West Georgia Technical College visit www.westgatech.edu or call (770) 537-5740. West Georgia has campuses in Coweta, Carroll, Douglas, Haralson, and Troup counties.

West Georgia Tech administers Central Educational Center (CEC) in partnership with Coweta County Schools. This one-of-a-kind model program bridges the gap between high school, technical education and the workforce. High school students get training–and even college credit–to allow them to enter the workforce with the skills necessary to compete in today’s global economy, earning the pay and benefits that go along with being a trained worker. For a detailed look at current offerings of West Georgia Technical College at CEC, call (678) 423-2000 or visit  www.westgatech.edu .


University of West Georgia, Newnan Center
The Newnan Center is a growing off-campus center of the University of West Georgia based in Carrollton. The center has been in operation in Newnan/Coweta County for 21 years. Located near I-85 in the Shenandoah Industrial Park in Newnan, the Center is very accessible to students in many neighboring counties. Last year’s enrollment included students from 46 counties.

The 14-acre campus was purchased from Georgia Power Company by the Coweta County Commission in 1998. Following an 11-year lease to the University of West Georgia, the ownership of the property will be transferred from the Coweta County Commission to the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia in mid 2009.

The Newnan Center offers university courses for students who want to begin and/or continue their education locally. During 2008, enrollment reached 3,400 in 174 credit classes. In addition to providing fundamental core curriculum classes, this center offers six graduate degree programs and two undergraduate degree programs. Master’s degrees in education are offered in Early Childhood Education, Middle Grades Education, Special Education, and Educational Leadership. A Master’s degree program in Business Administration meets once a week on Tuesday evenings and can be completed in 22 months. A Master’s degree in Criminology is now offered at the Newnan Center. The two undergraduate degrees offered are the Bachelor of Science in Nursing and the Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education. Two groups of nursing students have graduated from the UWG Newnan Nursing Program in 2007 and 2008. The first graduates of the Newnan MBA program received their degrees in May of 2009. The Newnan Center is also a test-proctoring site for students taking eCore and other online courses. For more information, visit www.newnan.westga.edu.


Brewton-Parker College
The Brewton-Parker College Newnan Campus is conveniently located at the nationally recognized Central Educational Center, 160 Martin Luther King Dr., Newnan. A friendly learning environment with large classrooms, state-of-the-art labs, and individual attention from an excellent group of faculty work together to bring a Christian-based education to its student body consisting of traditional college students who have just graduated from high school, as well as non-traditional students who juggle full-time job responsibilities. All classes are offered in the evening.

Students may elect to begin or continue their college education at the Newnan Campus. All core curriculum classes are offered along with degree programs such as a Bachelor of Business Administration with a concentration in General Business, Management or Technical Management, a Bachelor of Ministry, and a Bachelor of Arts in General Studies.
