Georgia Parent Survey
The Georgia Parent Survey is given each year by the state of Georgia. Questions on the survey are similar to the school climate questions taken by students and faculty in the Georgia Student Health Survey II and the Georgia School Personnel Survey. Data from the Georgia Parent Survey will be used to calculate Druid Hills High School's School Climate Star Rating within the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI).
Survey responses are anonymous and are submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. Data results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online.
