Georgia Parent Survey

Parents, we need your assistance with completing the Georgia Parent Survey because the data will be used to calculate the School Climate Star Rating. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. Data results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online.

The Georgia Parent Survey is available now. Parents will be able to complete the survey using their personal computers, smartphones or iPads. Data from this survey is used in calculating the School Climate Star Rating. This data provides our school valuable information about how parents see us.
