Georgia Parent Survey

We encourage all parents to complete The Georgia Parent Survey.   Parents may complete the survey using their personal computer, smartphone, or tablet.  The survey data will be used in calculating our School Climate Star Rating from the Georgia Department of Education. Survey responses are anonymous, self-reported, and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. The Georgia Parent Survey is also available in Spanish. Parents may select the Spanish version within the survey. The Georgia Parent Survey link is posted below
