If you missed your Chromebook meeting for students in grades 9-12, you may stop by TCHS between 9 - 11:30 and 1:00 - 3:30 Tuesday, Aug 7th through Thursday, Aug 9th. The video is about 30 minutes long. Also please remember, we are in the middle of pre-planning, so it may take longer than 30 minutes to get your Chromebook. Please be patient.

 

If you did not pick up your Chromebook on the scheduled day, you will need to get it before Friday, Aug 10th. Students will need their Chromebooks for class on Monday, Aug 13th and they will NOT be able to pick them up on the 1st day of school.

School Climate

The National School Climate Center defines school climate

as “the quality and character of school life” that is based on the “patterns of students’, parents’, and school personnel’s experiences of school life.”[1] School climate can be influenced by the norms, goals, values, interpersonal relationships, instructional practices, and organizational structures within a school. Research has found that schools with positive school climates tend to have better test scores and graduation rates; in contrast, schools with negative school climates as a result of unsafe or hostile environments tend to have lower academic performance.[2]

 A sustainable, positive school climate supports people feeling socially​, emotionally and physically safe.  In a positive school climate people are engaged and respected.  By contrast, disruptive and aggressive behavior such as threats, bullying, teasing and harassment creates a hostile school environment that interferes with academic performance.  A hostile school environment fosters increased absenteeism and truancy because students feel unsafe at school.  If a child is not physically and mentally in attendance, learning cannot take place.  [1] National School Climate Center. (2014). School Climate. Retrieved from http://www.schoolclimate.org/climate/.

Georgia Parent Survey

The Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) believes that a positive school climate is a significant factor in determining student achievement. School climate surveys were developed by the GaDOE to gather school climate perceptions from students, school staff members and parents. Data from the school climate surveys and other sources will be used in the calculation of School Climate Star Ratings for all Georgia public schools.
The Georgia Parent Survey contains 24 questions related to Teaching and Learning, School Safety, Interpersonal Relationships, Institutional Environment and Parent Involvement. Your input is very important. Your responses are strictly anonymous and you will not be asked to identify yourself at any time during the survey. You may complete the survey using your personal computer or smartphone.
