October is the month to complete our Georgia Parent Survey. This survey will play a part in our CCRPI points and our overall School Climate Star Rating. Feedback from all parents allows us to improve our school, celebrate our achievements, and be eligible for additional CCRPI points and all 5 Stars!!

This past year, we increased from two stars to four... We are aiming for all FIVE stars this year!!

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.
