Georgia Parent Survey
Please click HERE to complete the survey.   The Georgia Parent Survey was developed to measure parent perceptions of school climate at your child’s school. Your opinion is very important to us. Your survey responses are confidential and will be combined with the survey responses of other parents at your child’s school to identify areas in need of improvement. It should only take ten or fifteen minutes to complete the survey. Thank you for your time and participation.  Please read each question carefully.  Your responses impact our College and Career Readiness Performance Index School Climate rating.
