GEAR UP Parent Survey

We value parental input and encourage you to participate in the GEAR UP Georgia annual parent/guardian survey. Your responses will help us determine how GEAR UP Georgia is making a difference and find ways to make the program more effective. We will learn from you about the type of services you and your child need to better prepare for education and training beyond high school.


Parents and guardians may use their personal computers, smartphones or iPads to complete the survey. If you do not have access to the Internet, contact the school to schedule a time to complete the survey at the school. Please note that there is no identifiable data collected on the survey. Parents and guardians should feel free to offer their honest opinion. Authentic feedback is essential to support GEAR UP Georgia’s future success and continuous improvement.
