Georgia Parent Survey
As you may be aware, all schools in Georgia participate in School Climate
Surveys each school year. This suite of surveys
includes student surveys, staff surveys, and parent
surveys which are combined together to calculate
Durham’s School Climate Star Rating on the state of
Georgia’s College and Career Ready Performance Index.
The Georgia Parent Survey contains 24 questions.
Parents may complete the survey using your personal
computer, smartphone, or tablet. Survey responses are
anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia
Department of Education for analysis. Individual data
results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be
available to the public and will not be posted online.
To access the survey, please go to:
