School Climate - Parent Survey

Dear Parents:
Each year the State of Georgia Department of Education requests that our school conduct the Georgia School Health Climate Survey for staff, students (3rd/4th/and 5th graders only), and parents.  This particular survey collects important data which we analyze in an attempt to improve our practices and processes to meet the needs of our students and community.  Below is a link which is for the Parent Survey.  We’re asking our parents to take a few minutes to go online and use the link below to complete the survey.  The information we gather will be valuable for our ongoing school-wide planning.  The survey results are anonymous and secured as such.  Thank you for your consideration in completing this survey, we appreciate it.
