Thank You ACGC Stakeholders!

On November 6th, 2018, residents voted to allow Atwater-Cosmos-Grove City Public Schools to issue building bonds for mechanical, electrical, and other building component improvements. ACGC Schools would like to thank our residents for supporting our students, staff, and schools by passing this referendum. This project will allow our District to address these critical facility needs to continue our mission in preparing our students to be productive citizens in the future.

Now that the referendum has been approved, we will begin the design process and set construction timelines with the input of our communities. Thank you for supporting our students. We look forward to the future of the ACGC School District with your support.
