Dunwoody Springs Elementary School will be electing representatives to serve on the School Governance Council.  We will be electing parent/guardian positions and teacher positions for our spring election.  Our School Governance Council has a leadership role in the governance of the school. The Council works with the principal in setting the long-term vision and strategy for the school. They are responsible for approving the school's strategic plan and budget recommendations, as well as designing innovative solutions to increase academic achievement and meet the unique needs of our school community.


Elections for the parent/guardian and teacher positions on the School Governance Council will be held March 19th-March 23rd. Candidates interested in running for an elected position on the Council must complete a candidate declaration form and submit by February 23rd.    

Candidate forms may be submitted electronically or by mail (get a copy of the form from the school's front office and follow mailing instructions on the back of the form).

Survey.jpgEvery 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!


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.
