Greetings Owl Family!

We are excited to announce that Fulton County Schools has approved our charter for a 3-year term!!! Thank you for all of your support! We are committed to continuous improvement to make CHCS the best charter school in the state! GO OWLS!!! 

Please see important reminders and updates below.

1) Georgia Parent Survey 
The Georgia Department of Education uses the Georgia Parent Survey  as a data collection tool as a part of the calculation of the School Climate Rating. It contains 24 questions, and all parents are encouraged to participate. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. 

Please note that we are seeking favorable responses, as we are striving for 5 stars! Last year, we achieved 3 stars.. Let's do better this year! If there are any concerns you have regarding the school climate, please do not hesitate to reach out.

2) Accessing USATestPrep Data!!
Parents, be sure to have your scholars log in to their USATestPrep accounts with you, so that you can monitor their progress and mastery of standards. While they work on this in school, they can also complete independent practice while at home. Please see links below to assist you in navigating USATestPrep. 

  • Want to know how your child is progressing by standard? Find directions to access the Progress Report here

  • Want to know how to have your child complete independent practice on standards? Find directions on Independent Practice here
