Questions and Concerns
Parents who have questions and/or concerns are requested to resolve it at the most appropriate and immediate level. For typical classroom matters, the following procedures should apply in order as needed:
- Step 1- The parent discusses the matter with the teacher.
- Step 2- The parent and teacher meet with the principal if the matter is not resolved in step 1.
- Step 3- Those matters which cannot be resolved at the school level are referred to the GA/AL District Superintendent's Office, 706-545-7276.
These procedures follow the correct chain-of-command/line of authority from teacher to principal to superintendent and focus on resolution at the lowest level. Parents are encouraged to seek immediate resolution of problems. Prompt action can frequently prevent complications and more serious problems later on.
Parent-teacher conferences are held at the end of the first grading period. Report cards are distributed to parents during the conference. Conferences to discuss concerns, questions, and student progress may be scheduled at any time during the school year. Parents are encouraged to contact their child's teacher as soon as questions arise. Requests for conferences may also be left at the school office for delivery to the teacher.
