Georgia Parent Survey


Georgia is the first state in the nation to include school climate as an early indicator in its academic accountability system, the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI).  The School Climate Star Rating is a diagnostic tool to determine if a school is on the right path to school improvement.  The climate rating is made up of four main components:  School Climate, Student Discipline, Safe and Substance-Free Learning Environment, and Attendance.  Students, Parents, and Teachers are requested to complete surveys to assist in determining the first component - School Climate.  Please take a moment to complete the survey for your child's school.

 Attendance Incentives 2015-2016

Students with passing grades and no more than 5 excused absences (no unexcused) for the year will be exempt from completing final exams (worth 10%) on two days during the last week of school. These students will be assigned work from online classrooms instead in order to receive credit for these days. Students with perfect attendance will not be penalized for missing exam days if the online work submissions are completed.
- Students with more than 5 unexcused absences for the entire year will be required to complete makeup days during post-planning week before being promoted to the next grade, if eligible.

 State Testing Recognition Incentives
 Students passing the state test will receive an excused absence from school on the last day prior to Christmas Break the following school year. Instead they will complete an online classroom assignment and will not be counted as absent.
