Kinship care refers to a temporary or permanent arrangement in which a relative or any non-relative adult who has a long-standing relationship or bond with the child and/or family has taken over the full-time, substitute care of a child whose parents are unable to do so.
Kinship care includes those relationships established through an informal arrangement, legal custody, guardianship order, and a relative foster care placement.
Please contact Legal Compliance about the process and the necessary paperwork.
STUDENT DRUG TESTING
The Glynn County Board of Education firmly believes that the use and abuse of drugs that are not prescribed or used as prescribed are detrimental to the physical, emotional, and mental well-being of its students. The Board further believes that this abuse seriously interferes with the academic and athletic performance of students and creates an unhealthy learning environment.
Legal Compliance will oversee the random drug testing on any student involved in the following activities: Baseball, Basketball, Cheerleading, Cross Country, Football, Golf, Literary, Marching Band, One Act, Parking Permit, Soccer, Softball, Swimming, Tennis, Track & Field, Volleyball, and Wrestling.
It is the policy of the Glynn County School System not to discriminate on the basis of age, sex, race, color, religion, national origin, marital status, disability or any other legally protected status in its educational programs, activities or employment practices.
