ACOVA Survey - ACOVA Wants to Know Who We Serve!

As ACOVA prepares our program of work for the year, we want to know a bit more about you, your roles in CTE, and the school or district you represent. We believe this will help ACOVA meet your needs more efficiently. We are asking for 5 minutes of your time to answer a few questions so we can better respond to needs of CTE administrators across the state.

When you fill out this information, ACOVA will send out messages to sub-groups so the groups can work together as common groups. This form will collect email addresses. Please use your professional email to complete this survey.
