Georgia Parent Survey

The Georgia Parent Survey is modeled after the student survey and contains 24 questions.  A Spanish version of the parent survey will be available soon.  Parents will be able to complete the survey using their personal computers, smartphones or iPads.  For parents that do not have access to the Internet, HES is allowing parents to complete the Georgia Parent Survey at school.  All parents should be encouraged to participate in 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.
