Presidents' Day Holiday - February 15-16

Good Day Parents!

It is that time of year again and we need your help!  This is different survey other than the paper Advance Ed one you received several days ago.  The School Climate survey is used in the College and Career Readiness Score of your child’s school and district.  You may complete the survey by using a personal computer, smartphone or tablet.  For parents who do not have access to the Internet, we have some computers available in the Parent Resource Center at the Board of Education.  All parents are encouraged to participate in the Georgia Parent Survey because the data will be used as part of the calculations of the School Climate Star Rating.  Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. This survey will be open until Feb. 26, 2016.

The link address is below and will also be on the BOE and school websites:

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to let me know!

Thanks,

Amanda Long

The gifted referral season is now open and will remain open until February 12, 2016 for Spring testing. If you have a particular student in mind who really stands out as being an exceptional learner please contact Gray Kicklighter at (229)758-5592. A referral does not guarantee formal testing. The committee will review available test data, grades, previous gifted testing and the referral packet to determine whether they are a viable candidate for testing. This is according to the Miller County Gifted Manual and is within the DOE guidelines.
