As we would like to hear from all parents and employees, please take a minute to complete the Clayton County Public Schools (CCPS) Instructional Make Up Days Survey. Please note, the survey will close at 5:00 p.m. on Monday, January 29, 2018 and participants will only be able to complete the survey one time on any device.

As a reminder Clayton County Public Schools (CCPS) has an approved flexibility agreement with the Georgia Department of Education as a Strategic Waiver School System. As part of this agreement, CCPS has included waivers regarding the number of days and hours of instruction required in a school year. This means that the decision to make up instructional days missed for any reason is at the discretion of our Superintendent and Board of Education, with the understanding that the student performance accountability terms of the SWSS contract remain in place.

To date, CCPS has missed 7 instructional days due to adverse weather conditions. An initial response to these missed days has resulted in the decision to make the Professional Learning Day (Early Dismissal) of February 16, 2018 a full day of instruction. 

In light of our need to provide the best education possible for our students, the CCPS Leadership Team has determined that 3 of these missed instructional days must be recaptured. Therefore, this survey has been crated to obtain input from students and their families and from our staff. In creating this survey and the impact of making up instructional days, the District’s leadership team deem it pertinent to receive feedback from our parents, students, employees and community. Also, in addition to making up instructional days, parents/students are also encouraged to continue using available instructional resources, whether online or traditional hardcopy resources. It should be noted that future weather events may require additional make-up days. Your feedback is sincerely appreciated as we continue to establish a culture wherein we are committed to high-performance.
