Click on the Accreditation Stakeholder Feedback Survey Image to complete the survey.

The DeKalb County School District (DCSD) is currently undergoing an accreditation renewal process. Part of this process is the collection of feedback from stakeholders. We invite you to participate in the Family and Community Stakeholder Survey. The results of this survey, along with other stakeholder artifacts, will be used in the district’s accreditation renewal process.

The Family and Community Stakeholder Survey is available in the following languages: Amharic, Arabic, Bengali, Burmese, Chinese, English, French, Hindi, Napali, Somali, Spanish, Swahili, Telugu, Tigrinya, and Vietnamese. The survey is confidential and will take approximately ten minutes to complete. 

The survey will open Tuesday, September 7, 2021 and close Thursday, September 30, 2021 at 5:00 pm.
