The Dougherty County School System is seeking input from the community concerning Dougherty High School.
The school system is conducting an online survey as a chance to hear from those primarily east of the Flint River on the strengths and weaknesses of Dougherty High School.
The survey is a partial response to what happened at the school in February.
Last month, social media rumors caused some students to become unruly after hearing false statements that a number of programs would be canceled at the school.
Now, people will have an opportunity to voice their opinions on the school.
Spokesperson for the Dougherty County School System J.D. Sumner says the school system hopes to get more parents engaged with what is taking place at the school.
He says, “A school without parental engagement is not an effective school. So we’re really hoping to connect with those parents and try to find them more ways to get involved with the school.”
After hearing back from the community, the school system will discuss the results with school leaders on how the school can improve.
So far, more than 30 people have responded to the survey.
