Parents and Teachers,
As you know, there is a principal vacancy at your school, and we are currently working to fill that vacancy with the best candidate possible. A new and improved principal selection process was created in 2012, and it has already begun for your school. The first step in this new process is to build a unique profile for your school. The purpose of the school profile is to outline the unique characteristics of the school and to highlight the most important leadership skills that your future principal will need to be successful. While the profile is being built, there will be a screening of the applications to review cover letters, resumes, and references. First round interviews at the central office will include job simulations, interview questions, and writing prompts. The most qualified candidates will proceed to the round two interview that will be held at your school. Candidates will be interviewed on the competencies identified as the most critical to meet the unique needs of your school.
In order to build a school profile and obtain stakeholder input, a survey has been created. The survey is standard across the district and was developed by Fulton County Talent Division to determine the critical competencies needed of the school leadership specific to each school.
The link will be on your school's website for two weeks and will be open until midnight on Wednesday March 25. Your input is important, so we appreciate you taking the time to complete the survey. The survey link is below.
Georgia Surveys - School Climate Star Rating for CCRPI
Georgia provides three surveys that school districts can administer in order to acquire feedback for schools. At least 75% of all students in grades 3-12 must participate in the Georgia Student Health Survey, although parents can opt out for their children. There is also a Georgia School Personnel Survey for school staff and a Georgia Parent Survey as well. All survey responses are anonymous and reported directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. Results are used to inform the School Climate Star Rating as part of the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI).
The Georgia Parent Survey is modeled after the student survey and contains 24 questions. Parents will be able to complete the survey using their personal computers, smartphones or iPads. For parents that do not have access to the Internet, computers will be available in the school media center if they wish to complete the Georgia Parent Survey. The Georgia Parent Survey can be accessed by CLICKIN G HERE . The survey will be open until Friday, March 27, 2015.
