AdvancED parent survey

Greenville County Schools is constantly working to improve its programs and services to our students and families. Every five years, we go through a comprehensive strategic planning process including annual progress reviews as part of AdvancED’s accreditation.  These planning and review processes are important in validating the quality of our academic programs.  They also help colleges recognize quality schools, which can play a role in determining a student’s college acceptance.

As part of our accreditation process and to help identify the objectives that are most important to you, we need you to provide feedback via an electronic AdvancED parent survey. The data collected from this survey will also help individual schools revise local strategic plans to better respond to the needs of their students, families, and communities.

You may take this survey anytime from January 7 – 31.  Please submit your survey as soon as possible using the link shown below. If you have multiple children in our schools, fill out a separate survey to reflect the needs and experiences of each of your children. Student and teacher surveys are also an important part of this process, but those will be completed at school.

Thank you in advance for your participation in this important process.
