The Georgia Parent Survey is one element of the Georgia Student Health Survey (GSHS), administered every year to the entire student body. The GSHS is an anonymous, statewide survey instrument developed by many divisions within the GaDOE including the Assessment and Accountability Division and in collaboration with the Georgia Department of Public Health and Georgia State University. The GSHS identifies safety and health issues that have a negative impact on student achievement and school climate.
The Georgia Parent Survey is modeled after the GSHS, and contains 24 questions about the climate, safety, and academic environment of the school. Participation data will be used as part of our School Climate Star Rating, which is a component of an overall assessment done yearly to all Georgia schools, the College and Career Ready Performance Index, or CCRPI. Survey responses are anonymous, self-reported, and will be submitted directly to the Georgia DOE for analysis. School personnel will only have access to aggregate data at a later time.
