The School Climate survey is now available for Greenwood School District 51 parents! Parents can complete the survey via the Parent Portal in PowerSchool. This parent opinion survey was designed by the South Carolina Department of Education to measure perceptions of three factors: home and school relations, the school’s learning environment, and the school’s social and physical environment. Please consider completing this survey which will provide valuable information to our principals, schools and improvement teams. Here is the link to the portal: https://gwd51.powerschool.com/public/home.html
