  • Georgia Parent Survey

    The Georgia Parent Survey is designed to give parents an opportunity to share input with the Georgia Department of Education. It contains 24 questions. Parents may complete the survey using a personal computer, smartphone, or tablet. Parents that do not have access to the Internet should contact their child’s school to arrange to complete the survey at the school.

    The data parents provide by completing this survey will be used as part of the calculation of the School Climate Star Rating. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. 

    Individual data results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be available to the system or school personnel or the public and will not be posted online. 

    Please provide your voice for Gwinnett County Public Schools by clicking HERE and completing the survey.
