Georgia Student Health Survey

The first step to improving school climate is to measure and analyze it with a school climate survey instrument. The Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) is a national leader in the collection and analysis of school climate data through the implementation of its annual Georgia Student Health Survey 2.0 (GSHS 2.0). The GSHS 2.0 is an anonymous, statewide survey instrument developed by many divisions within the GaDOE including the Assessment and Accountability Division and in collaboration with the Georgia Department of Public Health and Georgia State University. The GSHS 2.0 identifies safety and health issues that have a negative impact on student achievement and school climate. Over the next several weeks and months Hillgrove students will begin taking this online survey. All Georgia public schools (grades 3-12) are required to participate in the GSHS 2.0. At least 75% of students in each grade level must participate in the GSHS 2.0 to be eligible for the School Climate Star Rating.
