Georgia Parent Survey

At Hendricks, we strive to serve our community to the best of our ability.  Would you please answer a few questions about how we're doing?

The Georgia Parent Survey is modeled after the student survey and contains 24 questions. Parents may complete the survey using their personal computer, smartphones or tablet. 

All parents are  encouraged to 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
