Parents will be able to complete the survey using their personal computers, smartphones or iPads. All parents are encouraged to participate in the Georgia Parent Survey because the data will be used to calculate the School Climate Star Rating; however, there is no mandatory participation rate for parents.  Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis.
