Health Survey Information
Dear Parents and Guardians,
GEORGIA PARENT SURVEY AND GEORGIA STUDENT HEALTH SURVEY 2.0 INFORMATION
Each year, the state of Georgia has each school administer a survey to parents, students, and staff members that generates the School Climate rating that is tied to our school’s CCRPI score. Each school must have a 75% participation rate on the Georgia Student Health Survey 2.0 and the Georgia School Personnel Survey. Failure to meet the 75% participation rate on these two surveys will result in a 0.00 score; thereby, significantly reducing a school’s School Climate Star Rating. We need your help in getting as many parents as possible to take the survey.
All parents are encouraged to participate in the Georgia Parent Survey because the data 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. 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 Student Health Survey 2.0
Students at Locust Grove Middle School will be taking the Georgia Student Health Survey 2.0 in their Social Studies classes between November 12th and December 21. Federal law requires that the student survey be made available for review by all interested parties; therefore, copies of the student survey may be reproduced and made available to parents or other parties upon request.
Student survey results and copies of the student survey questions, are available on the Georgia Department of Education webpage at:
If you do not wish for your child to participate, a copy of the opt out form can be found here and copies can also be found in the front office. Please return any opt-out forms to Apryl Mullvain, Graduation Coach.
