 Dear Parents, 

It is time to once again complete our Georgia Parent Survey.  The Georgia Parent Survey is modeled after the student survey and contains 24 questions. You may complete the survey using your personal computer, smartphone or tablet. For parents that do not have access to the Internet, we can assist by providing you a location here at Houston County High School to complete this survey.  I want to encourage you to participate in the Georgia Parent Survey because t...he data will be used as part of the calculation of the School Climate Star Rating.  This rating will be used to determine our overall CCRPI score.  The Georgia Parent Survey is also available in Spanish. Parents may select the Spanish version within the survey. Results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online. The Georgia Parent Survey link is posted below.  Thank you for taking time to complete this survey.  Bear Down!
