The Consolidated LEA Improvement Plan (CLIP) fulfills the need for a plan from LEAs (Local Educational Agencies) to be collected by the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) to define how the LEAs will support their students when accepting federal funds under The Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) of 2015.

While this voluntary survey has been available online, you may have forgotten to complete it. The Georgia Parent Survey was developed to measure parent perceptions of school climate at your child’s school. Your opinion is very important to us. Your survey responses are confidential and will be combined with the survey responses of other parents at your child’s school to identify areas in need of improvement. It should only take ten or fifteen minutes to complete the survey. Thank you for your time and participation. This survey is being maintained by the Georgia Department of Education and can be assessed using the link below. Thank you for your feedback. As a reminder, this voluntary survey closes on Friday, March 17th.
