  • The Georgia Parent Survey is modeled after the student survey and contains 24 questions. Parents will be able to complete the survey using their personal computers, smartphones or iPads.   The survey window opens November 1, 2017 and runs through March 29, 2018. All parents are encouraged to participate in the Georgia Parent Survey because the data will be used to calculate the School Climate Star Rating.

    Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis.  Data results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online.  If you do not have access to the Internet, please stop by the front office and a hard copy will be made available for you.  The URL address for the Georgia Parent Survey is posted below.

  • Getting Ready for Winter Weather

    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.

  • Georgia Student Growth Model

    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.
