Parent Survey

Dear Parent/Guardian,

The DeKalb County School District and all of its schools are engaged in an ongoing continuous improvement process, of which all stakeholders are an integral part. The DeKalb County School District is using the AdvancED Parent Survey as a means to elicit your opinions to help target areas for the school system to improve and areas to continue to be effective. The five sections on the survey represent the five AdvancED Standards for Quality School Systems and provide a means for learning about parent expectations of a high-quality school system.

Below, you will find the link which will allow you to access the survey. Your cooperation and support in completing the parent survey will be greatly appreciated.
