Climate Survey

1/10/2020 12:00 am

Every year the state releases a Climate Survey to all public school parents, staff, and students (3rd, 4th, and 5th grades in elementary). This survey is part of our CCRPI score that comes from the state every year. The CCRPI score is the way schools are "graded" in Georgia. HFE has received the highest score possible for 4 years running (5 stars) and we would like to keep that going! Last year we were the highest participating school in the county! The state deletes points for low participation on the survey, so we need you! Please read the questions carefully, because some of them do not follow the normal "agree" pattern. Click HERE for survey.
