Updates and Reminders:

*Dekalb County School District and all of its schools are engaged in an ongoing continuous improvement process, of which all stakeholders are an integral part.  Dekalb County School District is using the AdvancED Parent Survey as a means to elicit your opinions to help target areas for the school system to improve and areas to continue to be effective.  The five sections on the survey represent the five AdvancED Standards for Quality School Systems and provide a means for learning about parent expectations of a high-quality school system.  Your cooperation and support in completing the parent survey will be greatly appreciated.  Survey closes September 30.  It is the expectation that at least 20% of parents respond to survey and 40% of students.  Parent Survey HERE  Student Survey HERE
*A reminder that we will not deliver items to students during the school day.  Make sure student has everything needed when leaving home, car, and bus!
*Thanks to all the amazing parent volunteers for their support during Premiere Weekend! From Box Office to Parking Lot Patrol, our shows could not happen without our dedicated parents! Thank You!
*Dr. Crosslin, DSA Head Counselor, will be leaving DSA this week.  She will be serving DCSD in another position at the district level.  We thank her for her 3.5 years of service.
