Dear Garrison Mill Parents:

As a part of the Georgia Department of Education’s College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) the parents of all students in public education are encouraged to participate in a survey about their child’s individual school. This survey will give schools, districts, and the state information about parent perception regarding the school and will be included in the overall school results. None of the individual responses will be publicized, as this is an anonymous survey. Please use the link below to access the survey:

The completion deadline is March 30, 2018. Thank you in advance for taking this 5-10 minute survey and giving feedback on Garrison Mill!
