In our efforts to ensure that all children have an equal opportunity to learn and leverage technology, the Digital Dreamers Program is working to bridge the divide for our students, while also building globally competitive leaders of the future. Through the Digital Dreamers 1 Million Project the District will provide 300 mobile hotspots to eligible students at Columbia High School. The eligibility of students to receive a free mobile hotspot has been determined. Students who qualify will receive notification on Wednesday, August 30th as to the status of their eligibility. We will begin distribution on Thursday and complete distribution on Friday.

School Climate Survey – Parent Survey
The Georgia Parent Survey is also modeled after the student survey and contains 24 questions. Parents may complete the survey using their personal computer, smartphone or tablet. For parents that do not have access to the Internet, school administrators should consider scheduling dates and times to allow parents to complete the Georgia Parent Survey at school. All parents should be encouraged to participate in the Georgia Parent Survey because the data will be used as part of the calculation of the School Climate Star Rating. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. The Georgia Parent Survey is also available in Spanish. Parents may select the Spanish version within the survey. Results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online. The Georgia Parent Survey link is posted below.
