Georgia Parent Survey – Please give us your feedback!
The survey can be completed using your personal computer, smartphone or tablet. We are asking that all
parents participate in the Georgia Parent Survey because the data will be used as part of the calculation of the
School Climate Star Rating. 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.
