Whitfield County Schools is one of four recipients in Georgia to receive an Innovative Fund grant from the Governor's Office of Student Achievement. The grant, totaling over 550 thousand dollars, will fund Beyond the Classroom, a program that will serve over 1,500 children and parents throughout the year in Learning Academies, Power Lunches, Summer Literacy Camps, and other literacy events through partnerships with Dalton State College, the Northwest Georgia Healthcare Partnership, and the Northwest Georgia Regional Library.
As of November 1, the Department of Education has published its new financial data reporting tool as required by HB 139. HB 139 required the aggregation and publication of a variety of financial information for all school districts, such as revenue and expenditure data, capital construction costs, recent audits, and similar reports. The reporting system can be found at the link above.
The Georgia Parent Survey contains 24 questions. Parents may complete the survey using their personal computer, smartphone, or tablet. For parents who do not have access to the Internet, school administrators will allow parents to complete the Georgia Parent Survey at school. All parents are encouraged to participate in the 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. The Georgia Parent Survey is also available in Spanish.
State School Superintendent Richard Woods recognized Whitfield County Schools as an Economic Development Partnership (EDP) District at the Georgia Economic Developers Association (GEDA) conference Sept. 21 in Savannah, GA. The EDP program seeks to promote improved relationships between school districts and local businesses and industries. Whitfield is one of the first districts in the state to receive this recognition after being selected as a pilot participant in 2017.
