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
Georgia Parent Survey:
