  • Successful School Survey for Families

    Dear Parents/Guardians,

    Thank you so much for participating in our annual Successful Schools Family Survey. Your responses will help your school understand your experience and use them to set goals and plan for next year. The survey will cover topics on school safety, school climate, barriers to family engagement, and how well your school fits your student’s needs. Please be honest and thoughtful, and take your time to read and respond to the questions.

    Please visit the link below on a computer, tablet, or smartphone and select the school your child attends. If you do not have access to a computer or internet, please contact our main office so we can provide a way for you to take the survey. Thank you so much for your time and feedback!
