Georgia Parent Survey

Dewar Parents,
Please click on the link below to complete the Georgia Parent Survey on our school.  The survey is modeled after the student survey that our students in grades 3-5 will be participating in during the first week of February.  The deadline for completing the survey is February 26.  There are 24 questions and the survey can be completed on any device with access to the internet.  If you do not have access to the internet, please feel free to visit the Dewar Media Center during school hours to complete the survey.  Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis.  Thank you in advance for your participation!
