Georgia Student Health Survey
Parents, To help improve our schools and those across the state, Gwinnett County Public Schools students in grades 3-12 will participate in the Georgia Student Health Survey. The GSHS is an anonymous and statewide survey instrument that covers topics such as school climate and safety, peer, and adult social support, bullying, mental health, substance abuse, and suicidal ideation.
The Student Survey will be open for students in grades 3-12 via the GCPS Student Portal from
November 6 – December 15, 2023. GSMS will administer the Survey on November 6, 2023.
Parents may complete the Opt-Out process if they do not wish their student(s) to participate in the survey. Parents may use the Parent Portal to complete this process, or they may send a written request to the schools to opt their student(s) out of this survey. Please note that any parent/guardian wishing to opt his/her student out of the survey should complete the online form or inform the school in writing at least 72 business hours before the school has scheduled the administration of the survey to ensure that the student does not participate.

The Georgia Parent Survey is also 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.
Parents can come to the Parent Center at GSMS between the hours of 8:30 – 3:30 Monday - Friday to complete the survey. The Survey will be open to parents from November 3rd – December 15th.
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 system or school personnel or the public and will not be posted online.
