DISTRICT SURVEY FOR PARENTS AND STAFF

Many of you may have received an email and/or a phone call about the staff and parent/community surveys. We want to let you now that both surveys are now available online via the district website at: http://www.sweetwaterschools.org/parent-and-community-staff-climate-surveys-now-online/ Please click on the appropriate link and take a few minutes to answer the survey.


Your input is very important and we hope you will take some time to not only answer the survey, but share it with your colleagues, parent groups, neighbors and anyone that has an interest in our district! Also, FYI, we are working on getting the Spanish version of the survey up for parents/community in the next few days.

Thank you!!

--Manny Rubio
