Family Engagement survey

Each year the schools ask parents to provide feedback about our school family engagement.  This feedback helps us identify our strengths and areas for improvement.  As a parent, please respond to each statement on the survey. Your input is invaluable! 

We thank you for being active in your student's education and helping them accomplish their goals. Parent support and involvement makes a positive difference by elevating student academic performance and increasing achievements.
