We had 4 EMS and 4 VPM teams working together this year from Space Camp to FLL EdCamps, Practice Tournaments and more. Of the 8 teams represented by RAIDER NATION we will be sending 6 to the STATE tournament this year. This is such a great thing for our schools and kids. Our tournament only sends 8 teams on to the next level. So we are really proud to have so many teams representing RAIDER NATION. Probably one of the coolest moments this Saturday was the spontaneous RAIDER NATION cheering that happened as teams from both VPM and EMS ran rounds on the tables and students wanted to support both teams. It was heartwarming.

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.

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.
