  • Our parents are invited and encouraged to take the Georgia Parent Survey for the 2014-2015 school year.  Data from the Georgia Parent Survey will be used to calculate the School Climate Star Rating within the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI), along with the correlation between the student responses on the Georgia Student Health Survey 2.0 and school personnel responses on the Georgia School Personnel Survey.  The Georgia Parent Survey will remain open through February 27, 2015.  Parents will be able to complete the survey using their personal computers, smartphones, or iPads.  Parents that do not have access to the internet can contact the school to schedule an opportunity to take the Georgia Parent Survey at the school's computer lab.

    Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis.  Data results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online.

     **deadline extended through 3/27***
