GCPS Parent Perception Survey
The administration window for the Parent Survey will begin soon for the 2020-21 school year.
Please note the following:
The Parent Survey will be administered February 8 through February 26. Due to the pandemic, GCPS is administering a contactless version of the survey this year. There will be no paper or school computer option. Instead, SchoolMessenger will deliver an email invitation to families to complete a survey for each school at which they have one or more enrolled students. The survey will be available in English, Spanish, Korean, Vietnamese, and Chinese and will be accessed using the link and unique code provided in the SchoolMessenger email.
Please be on the lookout - we appreciate your feedback and continued support!
