The Griffin-Spalding County School System (GSCS) needs your help evaluating parent engagement programs and school quality for the 2018-2019 school year. Please take a few minutes to complete our Spring Parent Survey, which will help us know how to meet the interests and needs of your family more effectively. Your answers will be anonymous. Only one survey should be completed per household.
We are glad that you decided to visit the Parent Engagement Page. Getting engaged in your child’s education is a key piece of the student academic achievement puzzle. By getting more engaged, parents help us work towards closing the achievement gap between students and their peers and also change the culture of schools so parents, students and teachers define success as the academic achievement of every child.
Your student will reap great benefits from you getting and staying involved throughout their education. These include:
higher achievement in reading
higher grades and test scores
high graduation rates
greater enrollment in post-secondary education
overall higher student achievement
