Spring Parent Survey
Top of Page

Dear Parents/Guardians:
 
Each year the Griffin-Spalding County School System (GSCS) tailors our Parental Engagement Program to meet the needs and interests of our parents. Your input is not only valued and welcomed but it is vital for the success of the program. The results of this survey will help us know how to effectively plan parent engagement activities to support our families. Please answer each question as openly and honestly as possible. Your answers will be anonymous. Only one survey should be completed per household.
 
To take the survey online, you can access it by following the link below. If you would prefer to take it on paper, call the school and let us know. We'll send you a paper copy home.
 
Thank you for participating. We appreciate and value your opinions. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like any further information.
 
Thank you,
Dixie Johnston
Parent Engagement Liaison
