School-Parent Compact for Achievement and Family Engagement/Involvement Policy
The School-Parent Compact for Achievement is an agreement that was developed by parents, teachers, and students to explain how parents and teachers will work in partnership to make sure all students get the individual support they need to reach and exceed grade-level standards. The Family Engagement/Involvement Policy is a plan that describes how Eastside Elementary will provide opportunities to improve parent engagement to support student learning.
From time to time, we remind families about how we respond appropriately to bad weather. Part of that plan depends on our families (and staff) to keep their contact details up-to-date. When inclement weather affects the operation of schools and buses in Whitfield County Schools, we update the district website first. The most up-to-date information will always be published at wcsga.net.
In compliance with the Georgia Records Act, the Whitfield County School District’s records retention schedule, and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) regulations on destruction of data collected, maintained or used in the provision of a free and appropriate public education of students with disabilities in the District’s schools, the Special Education Department announces its intention to destroy special education records as indicated below after the following date: February 5, 2018.
We encourage all parents to complete the Georgia Parent Survey, which is available in English or Spanish from Wednesday, Nov. 1 until Friday, March 29. The survey is modeled after the student survey and contains only 24 questions. It should only require five to 10 minutes for parents to complete the survey using a computer, smartphone, or tablet. Families without internet access should contact their school about completing the Georgia Parent Survey at the school.
Beaverdale Elementary, Cedar Ridge Elementary, and North Whitfield Middle School are among the 226 Georgia public schools honored today, an increase of 8 schools statewide over last year.
We are pleased to provide you with your student’s Georgia Student Growth Model (GSGM) Report that provides information on your student’s academic progress during the 2016-2017 school year. Georgia’s growth model has been in place for several years and, as educators, we have been taking advantage of this information to improve your student’s educational experience. You have likely already heard about this growth model as it relates to the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) and the Teacher and Leader Keys Effectiveness Systems (TKES and LKES). In short, this report represents yet another way in which Georgia is seeking to improve the level of student achievement across our state.
Whitfield County Schools earned Georgia's Golden Radish Award at the Honorary level for its commitment to farm to school during the 2016–17 school year. District leaders strive to purchase food grown within 100 miles of the district. Whitfield also has a strong garden education program at three schools. They manage a mix of gardens, greenhouses, in-ground beds, and raised beds. Students grew multiple varieties of beans, herbs, zucchini, 16 varieties of tomatoes, 10 varieties of peppers, watermelon, cantaloupe, banana trees, and edible flowers.
Five middle school students from Whitfield County Schools are REACH Georgia Scholars eligible for a college scholarship worth up to $10,000. REACH stands for “Realizing Educational Achievement Can Happen.” The students attended a signing ceremony with their families on Monday, October 2, 2017.
