Fulton County schools superintendent Robert Avossa released the results of the systems 2012 quality survey to the school board at its August 14 work session. In the anonymous survey taken last spring asking principals to rate the performance of school administration, they ranked 11 departments — from finance to curriculum — on 4-point scale from very satisfied to very unsatisfied. Five overall themes were addressed: responsiveness, accuracy, courtesy, promptness, and assistance with problem resolution. The finance department scored the highest across the board with an average of about 3.4. Curriculum scored the lowest across the board, with an average of about 2.8. The results were given to department directors to aid their planning and improvement efforts.
