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.
