Georgia Schools’ Parent Survey
Please take a few minutes to complete the Georgia Schools’ Parent Survey. Data from this survey will be used to help calculate our School Climate Star Rating, within the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI). There are 20 questions and it should take about 10 minutes to complete. The survey may be completed on your computer, tablet, IPad, or smartphone.
The link to the survey is posted below. After you click on the link, a drop-down menu will appear to select the school system and school in which your child attends.
Thank you for taking the time to complete the Georgia Parent Survey for our school. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our school’s office.
