  • Your Opinion Matters! Take the Parent Survey!

    The Parent School Climate Survey for the 2018-2019 school year is open!


    This survey is YOUR opportunity to give your feedback about the school climate at the Georgia School for the Deaf. This survey is not very long—only 24 questions—and is available in both English and Spanish. You can complete the survey using your personal computer, smartphone, or tablet. Parents will also be allowed to complete the Georgia Parent Survey at GSD during any regular school day.


    The Georgia Parent Survey is for parents of all students in Georgia. The data collected is used as part of the calculation of the School Climate Star Rating. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. Schools with less than 15 parents participating in the Parent Survey will be designated as Low Participation (LP) and the results will not be calculated. Schools with no parent or low parent participation will see a negative impact on the school’s School Climate Star Rating. So we need your help—GSD doesn’t want to be a Low Participation school!


    You can take the survey here at any time: Once you start the survey, you can choose English or Spanish. Choose "State Schools--799" in the first drop-down menu, then "Georgia School for the Deaf" in the next drop-down menu.


    Thank you in advance for your participation and honest feedback. It is greatly appreciated! If you have any questions, please let me know.


    Marie Dickinson, GSD Family Engagement Coordinator
