2016-17 GaDOE Parent Survey

Parents, please help our district by taking a brief survey about your child(ren)'s school(s). The results of the survey will be used to help the Georgia Department of Education calculate our School Climate Star Rating within the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI).

Click the link below to beging the survey:

The survey may be taken using a computer, smartphone, or iPad / tablet. If you have technical difficulties, please call Greg Purcell at the Rabun County Board of Education at 706-212-4350.

A new federal rule does not allow calls made using automated dialing systems to any telephone number assigned to a mobile phone without prior express consent (or opt-in). The FCC treats an SMS text message in the same way as a voice call. There are exceptions for calls and texts made for “emergency purposes”.

For this reason, parents who wish to receive calls from Rabun County Schools this school year should follow the instructions in the video above to set calling preferences. Parents who do not opt in will likely not receive messages sent by the school system.

Go to http://schoolmessenger.com/start to set up your preferences.
