All parents of Chattooga County students are being asked to take to complete an online survey from the Georgia Department of Education, the “Georgia Parent Survey,” regarding the climate of their child’s school.
Data from the survey will be used to calculate the School Climate Star Rating on the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI), Georgia’s new accountability system that rates schools and school districts on a 100-point scale. The data will be combined with that from the Georgia Student Health Survey II and the Georgia School Personnel Survey to determine each school’s Climate Star Rating.
School climate refers to the quality and character of school life as it relates to norms and values, interpersonal relations and social interactions, and organizational processes and structures, according to the National School Climate Center. School climate sets the tone for all the learning and teaching done in the school environment and it is predictive of students’ ability to learn and develop in healthy ways.
The online survey has 20 questions and can be completed in 5 - 10 minutes. Responses are anonymous and are submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. Data collected will not be available to the public or posted online. For parents that do not have access to the Internet, please contact your school administrator about scheduling dates and times to complete the Georgia Parent Survey at school.
