If you cannot get through to the main office at your student’s school and need to relay a message, you can call the Central Administrative Office (CAO) at 335-1867. Thank you! -CGPS We apologize for any inconvenience the outages have caused. We will provide an update as Spectrum shares more information.

Keep shining!

CA student Taylor Banks read her award-winning essay as she shared obstacles she has had to overcome throughout her life, and goals she hopes to achieve through the support of JAG.
