for the 15 school systems it serves:
Statewide, Georgia’s high school graduation rate has increased for the fifth straight year,
from 79.4 percent in 2016 to 80.6 percent in 2017. This is the first year the state’s graduation rate
has risen above 80 percent using the adjusted cohort calculation now required by federal law.
Fifty Georgia school districts recorded 2017 graduation rates at or above 90 percent. GaDOE officials
said the graduation rate continues to rise as Georgia’s schools and districts increase students’ access
to unique, personalized learning opportunities that keep students engaged – including Career Pathways,
dual enrollment, AP and IB programs, work-based learning and internships. Local districts and schools
are utilizing data more effectively to identify students’ individual learning needs; there is increased emphasis
on a balanced curriculum that supports the whole child and a positive school climate that allows students to
learn in a safe, supportive environment, according to state school officials.

New Counseling Registration Process for our Atlanta Office
The Teachers Retirement System of Georgia (TRS) now offers online registration for pre-retirement counseling appointments in our Atlanta Office. The introduction of online registration for counseling appointments will automate all event registrations—streamlining the process for all members.

Once the member has reached the Account Summary page, he or she will search for available appointments by clicking onAppointments/Eventson the right-hand side of the screen. During the registration process, a member may select either an appointment/event at our office or at another location.
We encourage all of our members to register for an online account to have access to Appointments/Event registration, Annual Member Statements, and the Application for Retirement. A member may create an account by visitingwww.TRSGA.com. On the website's homepage, hover over theAccount Loginlink located in the navigation bar at the top of the page. SelectActive Member Loginin the drop down menu. From there you can select to register for account access or log into your existing account.
TRS is dedicated to providing exceptional customer service to members. We are always looking for ways to improve the services we provide. We believe this new process will expedite the registration process and improve our members' experiences with TRS.z
