Georgia Parent Survey


The Georgia Parent Survey is also modeled after the student survey and contains 24 questions.  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.  All parents should be encouraged to participate in the Georgia Parent Survey because the data will be used to calculate the School Climate Star Rating .  However, there is no mandatory participation rate for parents.  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.  The URL address for the Georgia Parent Survey is posted above.


Georgia School Personnel Survey

The Georgia School Personnel Survey (GSPS) is modeled after the student survey and includes 31 questions.  The GSPS is for all teachers, school administrators, certified staff members and other classified staff members (paraprofessionals, office staff, cafeteria workers, custodians, etc.) who work at least 50 percent of the day in the school.  At least 75% of your teachers and administrators must participate in the survey to be eligible for the School Climate Star Rating.  Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis.  Data results from the Georgia School Personnel Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online.  The URL address for the Georgia School Personnel Survey is posted above.
