In the News

Focus is Columbia County School District's new online student information system that allows teachers and staff to view and update student data through a web portal.  The Focus portal allows the district to manage schedules, attendance, gradebooks and much more from a single web page.  

Focus also offers a Parent Portal so that parents can stay current with their child's education as well as keep up with school and district news and events.  Currently, the Parent Portal is being tested before being publicly released.  Parents will be notified when the portal is available and instructions will be provided on how to enroll.
