In Whitfield County and at Dug Gap Elementary, we value the input of parents. Throughout the year, we request parents to provide input through various means. While we prefer face-to-face interaction and even phone calls, we are often dependent on surveys to discover what you think and feel regarding your child’s education.
Each year, the State of Georgia provides such a survey for parents to complete anonymously. The feedback you provide directly relates to our CCRPI score and is therefore invaluable. As a staff, we look at your feedback and make decisions based on how you respond.
We are requesting that you take 5-10 minutes to complete the attached survey. You can either complete the paper copy and return it to the school or go online and complete it. Either way, we appreciate your input and support.
In Georgia, the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement (GOSA) prepares Georgia’s State, Local, and School Annual Report Cards. The Annual Report Cards contain test results as well as other information relevant to school performance toward the goals of student achievement and school completion. The Report Card is in compliance with both state and federal laws with respect to reporting requirements. GOSA partners with the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) to produce the K-12 Public Schools Reports since much of the data comes from GaDOE.
