Georgia School Personnel Survey

The Georgia School Personnel Survey (GSPS) is modeled after the student survey and includes 31 questions. The GSPS is for all staff (certified and classified) who work at least 50 percent of the day in the school. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. Data results from the Georgia School Personnel Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online.

The results of this survey are a part of our School Climate Star rating included in our CCRPI score.

Georgia School Personnel Survey:

The employee will use the drop-down menu to select their school district and school.

The window is now open and surveys must be completed no late than February 26th.

eClass Focus

Congrats to Jennifer Chandler!

She is using Padlet embedded into eclass to gauge understanding and foster collaboration. She posts a weekly question that correlates to what the students are studying. This is an EASY way to engage ALL students and can be done on devices or laptops from any internet connected computer! Jennifer will be getting the eClass Focus jeans coupon!

Just to give you a little to look forward to...this will be one of our learning sessions on our January workday!
