Message From the Principal...

 Next week during conference week, parents will be asked to complete the Georgia School Climate Survey in our media center. Please note that schools with no or low participation on the any of the surveys will not be permitted to receive the five (5) additional points for research/evidence-based programs/interventions they are implementing for Personalized Climate. This also applies to the 0.5 point awarded to the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) “Exceeding the Bar” indicator THEREFORE, WE NEED YOUR PARTICIPATION FOR SURVEY SEASON.  IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU TAKE THE PARENT SURVEY.

 The Georgia Parent Survey has 24 questions and may be completed on personal computer, smartphones or tablet until November 20, 2015.  For parents that do not have access to the Internet, parents may come to the school between 7:15am until 6:00pm and ask for Mrs. Tammy Floyd, Parent Facilitator.  All parents are encouraged to participate in the Georgia Parent Survey because the data will be used as part of the calculation of the School Climate Star Rating. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis.  Individual data results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online.  The URL address for the Georgia Parent Survey is posted below. You may take it now if you wish.

Thanks for your support and cooperation.
