Introduction and Purpose

Thank you for taking the time to complete our survey!

In Richmond County, we understand that academic and life success is impacted by more than what happens at school. We want to support students' social, emotional, and academic learning. Your voice is vital to this effort. After all, no one knows more about student life and school experience than you.

The following questions are a result of conversations with high school students in Richmond County. Your answers to the following questions will help us develop programs and services to meet needs identified by our students.

In the coming weeks and months, we will continue to seek the input of students on programs and services needed. You may be invited to Focus Groups in the future to discuss specific topics. If so, we hope you'll come share more about your experience and your ideas to make our school better.

If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Bracey at bracena@boe.richmond.k12.ga.us or 706-373-6739.

For urgent matters related to your personal safety or the safety of others, please contact your counselor immediately.
