RHHS Wildcats: News You Can Use

#WEareRH - Friday, 1/12/18

Georgia Parent Survey

Each year, the State of Georgia gives schools the opportunity to have all stakeholders provide feedback about their schools. Students, school personnel, and parents are provided survey links to share their feedback. School personnel and students will complete their surveys during January and February. During this same time, we would also like to get as many parents to complete the survey as possible.


Georgia Parent Survey

The Georgia Parent Survey is modeled after the student survey and contains 24 questions. Parents may complete the survey using their personal computer, smartphone or tablet. For parents that do not have access to the Internet, please come to the west office, and we will gladly provide you the computer and internet access to complete this. 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. Parents may select the Spanish version within the survey. Results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online.

The Georgia Parent Survey link is posted below.

Taking care of our students

Did you know that a counselor is in each lunch, in each cafeteria, every Thursday? This is a good time for students to let a counselor know that they need a face-to-face meeting or ask questions about things like graduation requirements, pathway completion, college, entrance exams for college, and HOPE scholarship. We know that students might be overwhelmed and unsure of where to go or who to see - the counselors at lunch can help get them moving in the right direction.


I've included counselor information below - please never hesitate to let us know if we can be of better support. Email information for each counselor can be found on the RHHS website (http://www.bryan.k12.ga.us/o/rhhs/page/school-counseling--7 )
