Atlanta Public Schools seek input on snow storm response

Posted: Updated:

Nearly a week after the Atlanta Public School District was faced with a snow emergency, the district is asking parents, teachers and students to fill out an online questionnaire, asking what they did right and what they did wrong.

Superintendent Erroll Davis said the form, which can be found online, is a way to make sure they don't repeat the same mistakes in the future.

"We need to know what worked what didn't work and how we can be better prepared for when this happens again, because it is going to happen again," Davis said.

Some parents said Davis' response to the snow storm was not fast enough.

"It was like playing a game of 'Where's Waldo?' Where is our superintendent," said parent Cassandra Rainey.

Rainey said Davis did not communicate with parents during the storm about what the district was doing to keep students safe.

"No one knew anything, except for what we heard on the news," Rainey said. "Everyone knew about this storm."

Davis said some children slept at schools overnight until the roads could be cleared of ice and snow. Fifty students were stranded on buses and had to be rescued the following morning.

Davis said he is proud of the educators and bus drivers that made sure the students were safe during the emergency.

"I am proud we got everyone home," Davis said.
