The time to administer the Georgia Parent Survey for the 2013-2014 school year has arrived. This is the first year that the Georgia Parent Survey has been administered. The questions on the Georgia Parent Survey will mirror the school climate questions in the Georgia Student Health Survey II and the Georgia School Personnel Survey. 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) to determine a correlation between the student responses on the Georgia Student Health Survey II and school personnel responses on the Georgia School Personnel Survey. The Georgia Parent Survey will officially open on Tuesday, October 29, 2013 and will remain open through Friday, January 31, 2014.The Georgia Parent Survey will be administered electronically. Parents will be able to complete the survey using their personal computers, smartphones or iPads. For parents that do not have access to the Internet, school administrators might consider scheduling dates and times to allow parents to complete the Georgia Parent Survey at school. The Georgia Parent Survey has 20 questions and it should take no more than 5 - 10 minutes to complete it. 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.
All parents should participate in the Georgia Parent Survey. However, there is no mandatory participation rate. Please note that although there is no mandatory participation rate, responses from the Georgia Parent Survey will be used to calculate the School Climate Star Rating.
