Georgia Parent Survey
Parents, we need your assistance with completing the
Georgia Parent Survey because the data will be used to
calculate the School Climate Star Rating. 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.
The Georgia Parent Survey is available now. Parents will
be able to complete the survey using their personal
computers, smartphones or iPads. Data from this survey
is used in calculating the School Climate Star Rating.
This data provides our school valuable information about
how parents see us.
Help us learn more about you, the parent, by completing
the Georgia Parent Survey. To complete your survey
The Cobb County School District is proud to introduce
Connect Parent Portal,
an online system designed to allow you to customize how
you receive notifications from your child's school as
