TRS Launches Online Counseling Registration
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.
Previously, TRS only offered online registration for appointments outside the Atlanta office. This new online tool now offers online registration for appointments at our Atlanta office and is similar to the process for our outreach events held throughout the State of Georgia.
To view available appointment times and register, a member will be required to log into his or her existing TRS account or create an account if one does not exist. 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

Parent Notification of the FY 16 Terrell County Schools ESEA Flexibility Waiver. As of March 30, 2012, the U.S. Department of Education granted Georgia a waiver from some accountability requirements of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), more commonly referred to as No Child Left Behind (NCLB). The waiver will allow Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) more flexibility for how schools are evaluated and supported. Prior to the ESEA waiver, Georgia used Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) as the state's accountability measure. The new statewide accountability system, the College and Career Readiness Performance Index (CCRPI), will serve as the future of accountability for all public schools and districts in Georgia. Attached is the FY 16 Terrell County Schools ESEA Flexibility Waiver Parent Notification in English and Spanish.
