Dear Parent/ Guardian,
Research indicates that schools with positive school climate rating 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. The Georgia Department of Education is a national leader in the collection and analysis of school climate data through the implementation of its annual parent survey. This survey is anonymous and administered statewide. Your opinion is very important to us, and should only take a few minutes and can be completed on your smartphone, tablet, or any computer device. Your participation is so important to us. The more participants we have, the better calculation of our school climate star rating.
