SC Department of Education's Climate Survey

 Message from Dr. Hasinger


The South Carolina Department of Education has released the Parent Climate Survey in the Parent Portal.

Once you log into the Parent Portal, click on the Forms link and the survey will have tabs for each student if you have more than one child attending school in Richland One. You will click on the tab(s) and complete the survey for each student.

The deadline to complete the survey is Friday, May 27. We are aware of reports statewide of issues with the survey, such as not being able to take it more than once if you have more than one student, but the state has assured us that it is working now.

If you do have an issue with the survey, please use this link to report the issue:

If you do not have a Parent Portal account, please contact our database specialist (Mandy Moore at who can provide a printout with detailed instructions on how to set up an account or visit our webpage for written instructions (   

If it is not possible to create an account at this time, Ms. Moore can provide a one-time QR code for your student(s) that can be scanned with your smartphone, and this will allow you to complete the survey. If you have more than one student, you will need a separate QR code for each student from his or her respective school.
