Annual Title I Surveys

We invite you to provide feedback as part of our ongoing continuous improvement process.  This allows us to make more informed decisions related to Title I School Improvement Plans and Family Engagement Policies. The survey results will enable our Title I Program to measure stakeholders’ perceptions and help target improvement strategies focused on student achievement as well as school and district effectiveness.  The survey will be available through April 30, 2019. All responses to this survey will be anonymous. In order to complete the survey, please use the links below.

Georgia Parent Survey

Each year, our school receives a School Climate Star Rating within CCRPI.  Our rating is based on students, staff, and parents completing climate surveys.  The Georgia Parent Survey contains 24 questions. Parents, you may complete the survey using your personal computer, smartphone, or tablet. If you do not have access to the Internet, you may come to the school to complete the Georgia Parent Survey. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. The Georgia Parent Survey is also available in Spanish. Parents may select the Spanish version within the survey. The Georgia Parent Survey link is posted below.  We need ALL parents to complete the survey.
