Georgia Parent Survey

It is that time of year again for the Georgia Parent School Climate Survey for the 2015-2016 school year. The faculty and staff at Palmer Middle School would greatly appreciate our parents taking a few minutes to complete the Georgia Parent School Climate Survey.  The survey contains 24 questions, and you will be able to complete the survey using your personal computers, smartphones, or iPads. The data is used as part of the calculation of the School Climate Star Rating.  Last year Palmer had a School Climate Star Rating of four stars.  Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis.  Data results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online. To take the survey, click here or use the link on the left.
