A Message from Amanda Thomas, Transportation Supervisor
My name is Amanda Thomas and I am the Transportation Supervisor for the schools in the North Springs Cluster. I want to extend an apology to you all for the late buses and let you know, we are working diligently towards a suitable solution. Until then, please continue to be patient with us. If you have not been receiving notifications, but need to, please send the following information to ThomasAJ@fultoschools.org:
Name, Bus Number, and method of contact (email or phone number to receive text messages).
Lastly, if you know someone with a great driving record in need of employment, please refer them to fultonschools.org/careers and tell them to apply for the School Bus Driver Position.
Every year, the state rates schools based on several data points. One of these data points is a survey that all staff, students, and parents complete about our school. You may complete the survey using your personal computer, smartphone or tablet. If you do not have access to the Internet, you are welcome to take the survey at DSES. We encourage all parents to take the survey because the data will be used as part of the calculation of the School Climate Star Rating. No parent participation or low parent participation will negatively impact our school's School Climate Star Rating from the state. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. Results from the survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online. We greatly appreciate your time and effort!
CLICK BELOW FOR THE GEORGIA PARENT SURVEY LINK:
Students in grades 3, 4, and 5 take their portion of the survey at school and it is called the Georgia Student Health Survey 2.0. Federal law requires that the student survey questions be made available for review by all interested parties. Parents can opt out of the survey for their student. If you do not want your child to take the survey, please send a hand written and signed note to your child's teacher by Friday, November 3, 2017. If you do not respond by this date, we will assume that your child can take the survey. All 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students will take the survey at some point between November 6th- November 17th.
