Georgia Parent Survey
Parents & Guardians:
We would like to take this opportunity to encourage you to participate in the annual Georgia Schools' Parent Survey. The data will be used as part of the calculation of the School Climate Star Rating. The Georgia Parent Survey is modeled after the student survey and contains 24 questions. Parents will be able to complete the survey using their personal computers, smartphones or tablets. Also, on December 20, 2017, parents are welcomed to take the parent survey at Fernbank Elementary School. The Georgia Parent Survey is also available in Spanish. Parents may select the Spanish version within the survey. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis.
The URL address for the Georgia Parent Survey is posted below. Thanks in advance for your participation.

Georgia Student Health Survey II
The Georgia Student Health Survey for third-fifth grade is a brief 15-minute survey. Please encourage students to take the questions seriously and answer truthfully. The results are used to guide each school's School Climate Initiatives, provide direction for health curriculum, provide goals for drug prevention education, and more.
§ Parents can opt their child out of this survey by completing a Passive Permission/Opt Out Form for their child's grade level. Copies of the student survey questions, and parent permission forms are available on the Georgia Department of Education webpage at http://www.gadoe.org/Curriculum-Instruction-and-Assessment/Curriculum-and-Instruction/GSHS-II/Pages/Georgia-Student-Health-Survey-II.aspx.
§ Participation is voluntary; however, each school must obtain 75 percent student participation to receive a Climate Star Rating.
