Georgia School Climate Survey for Parents
The Georgia School Personnel
Survey (GSPS) is an anonymous, statewide survey
instrument, that identifies school climate issues
that have a negative impact on student achievement.
The questions mirror the school climate questions
in the Georgia Student Health Survey 2.0. Data from
the GSPS will be used to calculate the School
Climate Star Rating within the College and Career
Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) to determine a
correlation between the student responses on the
Georgia Student Health Survey 2.0 and school
personnel responses on the GSPS. The survey
contains 24 questions and parents can complete the
survey using a computer, smartphone, or iPad. Data
results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be
available to the public and will not be posted
online. Parents can use the link below to complete
the survey. Thank you, in advance, for participating
and helping Simpson reach a Star Rating.

April Book of the Month
When the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE)
announced the College & Career Ready Performance Index
(CCRPI) scores on December 8, district administrators
noticed that specific information for calculating a
portion of the score was not included in the released
score for each middle school. Therefore, the middle
school CCRPI scores showed an inaccurate drop across the
district. The issue was immediately addressed on
December 9 by the district with the GaDOE Accountability
and Assessment Department and is currently being
Once the new data is incorporated into the
recalculation, correct scores for CCSD middle schools
will be released and published by the GaDOE at the end
of January. Based on internal preliminary calculations
by district administrators, the results show that the
CCRPI score at every middle school, as well as the
overall district score, will increase. The corrected
scores will be issued by the State within the next 45
