Parent Climate Star Survey

Each year, the state of Georgia releases a School Climate Star Rating for every school. We are always striving for a 5-star rating at every school! School climate is measured through four components: student, staff and parent surveys (25%), student discipline (25%), school-wide attendance (25%) and safe and substance-free learning environment (25%). Your survey responses will be to identify areas in need of improvement and contribute to the schools overall Climate Star Rating. It should only take five or ten minutes to complete the survey.
The window for parent feedback for our current academic year (2019-2020) is now open. It is important that the majority of our parents provide input for this important state-wide climate rating of our school.
