CLIMATE & CONNECTEDNESS SURVEY

We value input from our families. You are an important partner as we work to continually improve each school’s environment. Each parent/guardian is asked to complete one survey.


You can access the survey via the following websites:


surveys.panoramaed.com/aasb or https://goo.gl/Enqoi2.


Then enter the code: eagleacademyfamily


Results from this survey will be used to identify family perceptions of school climate issues within our school(s). School staff use the results to inform their efforts to ensure schools are safe, supportive, and caring places for all students.
