Georgia Parent Survey
Parents of students in Cobb County Schools are encouraged to give their input on their students’ schools.
The Georgia Department of Education has devised the Georgia parent survey allowing parents to go online and rate the climate of their children’s schools. The DOE developed the survey to gather perceptions from school community members regarding various aspects of school environments.
The Georgia parent survey contains 24 questions related to teaching and learning, school safety, interpersonal relationships, institutional environment, and parent involvement. The answers provided in the surveys will be taken into calculation of school climate star ratings for all public schools throughout Georgia.
All responses will be kept anonymous, and surveys can be taken on personal computers or smartphones. The survey can be accessed online.
We also want to let you know that students will be taking Georgia Health Survey (GHS) 2.0. The GSHS 2.0 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 2.0 identifies safety and health issues that have a negative impact on student achievement and school climate.
For more information on the Georgia Health Survey, you can visit the DOE online.
