WE WANT YOU!
To run for School Governance Council!
Summit Hill 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 on 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 22nd- 28th. Candidates interested in running for an elected position on the Council must complete a candidate declaration form and submit by Feb 17th!
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).

Georgia Department of Ed Parent Survey
Georgia is the first state in the nation to include school climate as an early indicator in its academic accountability system, the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI). CCRPI establishes the school grade published by the state and is a very important indicator of school success. School letter grades and the data associated with CCRPI have a significant impact upon our community and the view of Summit Hill Elementary School as a whole.
The School Climate Star Rating is calculated by using data, including the Georgia Parent Survey. All parents are strongly encouraged to participate in the Georgia Parent Survey. The survey contains a total of 24 questions and should take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. Please take a moment to complete the following survey. Parents may complete the survey using their personal computer, smartphones or tablet. We appreciate your time.
