Gwinnett Parents-


If you are the parent of a 4th or 5th grader during the 2014-2015 school year in Gwinnett, you have a unique opportunity to share the impacts that the Georgia mandated FITNESSGRAM® Report had on your child and family by participating in this short voluntary survey.


Part I, regarding the FITNESSGRAM® Report (click this link to see a sample report http://tinyurl.com/n8tdlks) is seven questions and Part II investigates physical activity support at home, with eight groups of multiple choice questions. The time to complete both sections of the survey is minimal. By taking six to eight minutes to answer the questions in both sections of the survey, you can help stakeholders in the state of Georgia learn about the impacts of the FITNESSGRAM® Reports once they reach the homes of our students. We can also learn about the obstacles parents encounter with supporting physical activity outside the school setting, when you complete the second part of the survey. Please take this survey only once for each child in the 4th or 5th grade.
