Dear Educator:
If you’re shopping for auto insurance, take a look at Horace Mann – the company Founded by
Educators for Educators® in 1945. Two teachers started our company because they believed

We offer special benefits that most companies don’t offer — including our exclusive Educator
Advantage Package® – and an educator discount that can save you up to 10%.
Please let me give you a FREE quote today. And when you decide to make a change, I can help
you get a refund from your current insurance company. Start saving today – and put those savings
to work by planning for a financially successful future – by calling me at 229-336-9040.

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.

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
