Parents Urged to Share Opinions in Survey

One of the goals of our new Strategic Plan is to increase the collaborative partnership between our parents and the District. We have developed a survey that will provide parents with an opportunity to give us feedback on how well we are serving the needs of their child(ren). The results of this survey will be used to help us determine specific areas for improvement as well as those areas we need to continue developing in order to better meet the needs of all children. This survey will be available until October 16, 2015. Please see “Read more” below for a link to the survey.
