Let us know how we are doing.

A growing body of research indicates that schools with positive school climate ratings have better test scores and higher graduation rates.  School climate refers to the quality and character of school life.  The first step to improving school climate is to measure and analyze it with a school climate survey instrument.  The Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) is a national leader in the collection and analysis of school climate data through the implementation of its annual Georgia Student Health Survey (GSHS).  Students, parents, and school personnel participate in the anonymous survey instrument. The GSHS identifies safety and health issues that have a negative impact on student achievement and school climate. The

The Georgia Parent Survey contains 24 questions. Parents may complete the survey using their personal computer, smartphone, or tablet. For parents who do not have access to the Internet, school administrators should consider scheduling dates and times to allow parents to complete the Georgia Parent Survey at school. All parents are encouraged to participate in the Georgia Parent Survey because the data will be used as part of the calculation of the School Climate Star Rating. Survey responses are anonymous, self-reported, and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. The Georgia Parent Survey is also available in Spanish. Parents may select the Spanish version within the survey. The Georgia Parent Survey link is posted below.
