According to a release by the Georgia High School Association, Cedartown High School will be changing regions in fall of 2014. Cedartown will join Region 5-AAA sub region B. This will place Cedartown in a sub region with Pepperell, Adairsville and Rockmart. Sub region A will be made up of Callaway, Central Carroll, Haralson County and possibly a new school in the Meriweather County area. Region classifications are determined by the number of students a school is projected to have in the upcoming years. These newest numbers are projected for the fall 2014-2016. The new region will not go into effect until the fall sports in 2014.
