Dear RBES Parents,
We value parent input and encourage you to participate in the Georgia Department of Education annual parent school climate survey. The results will go into our school’s School Climate Star Rating, which is part of our annual College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI). The College and Career Ready Performance Index is Georgia’s tool for annually measuring how well its schools, districts, and the state itself are helping students achieve their goals. Every year, each school in Georgia receives a CCRPI score from 0 to 100. The School Climate Star Rating shows how well a school is fostering an atmosphere where students feel welcomed, safe, and respected.
The GaDOE will not make the survey’s raw data results public, but a school’s CCRPI scores, including its School Climate Star Rating are made public annually. The Georgia Parent Survey contains 24 questions. Parents may use their personal computers, smartphones or iPads to complete the survey. Parents that do not have access to the Internet, may contact the school to schedule a time to complete the survey at the school. The 2016-2017 survey window is open October 3, 2016- March 3, 2017. Please visit the following link to participate in the survey
Thank you for your time and input into this important survey!
The RBES Faculty and Staff

Please be sure to send your child to school every day with a snack. Snacks should be quick and easy to eat, as we have five minutes for snack. Please be mindful of the sugar content in snacks and of our friends who have nut allergies. Thank you!
