Special Request from Our Principal, Dr. Garriss:
We would greatly appreciate it if you would please complete the Georgia Parent Survey that factors into our School Climate Rating Score and College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI). Below is information and the link to the survey. Please fee free to complete it at home. Many thanks to you and your support for our incredibly wonderful new school!
Georgia Parent Survey
The Georgia Parent Survey is modeled after the student survey and contains 24 questions. Parents may complete the survey using their personal computer, smartphone or tablet. All parents are encouraged to participate in the Georgia Parent Survey because the data will be used as paret 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. The Georgia Parent Survey is also available in Spanish. Parents may select the Spanish version within the survey. Results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online. The Georgia Parent Survey link is posted below.
Georgia Parent Survey: http://gshs.gadoe.org/parents
Although there is no madatory participation rate for the Georgia Parent Survey, schools that have no participation in the survey will receive 0.0 score. Schools with less than 15 parent surveys will be designated as Low Participation (LP) and the results will not be calculated. Either way, no parent or low parent participation will negatively impact a school's School Climate Star Rating.
