Parents' Right to Know

In compliance with the requirements of Every Student Succeeds Act, the Griffin-Spalding County School System would like to inform you that you may request information about the professional qualifications of your student’s teacher(s) and/or paraprofessional(s).

The following information may be requested:

  • Whether your child's teacher has met state qualification and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction
  • Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which state qualification or licensing criteria have been waived
  • Whether the teacher is teaching in the field of discipline of the certification of the teacher
  • Whether the child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.

Strive for 95 Attendance

The Griffin-Spalding County School System aspires towards positive student attendance outcomes, every day. Students learn most effectively and most abundantly when they regularly attend school to experience impactful instruction from their teachers, and participate in the learning experiences. As such, the Division of Student Support Services has developed an action plan for our student attendance improvement initiative: Strive for 95 Campaign.
