Please Complete Our Parent Needs Assessment Survey

Dear Broad Rock Elementary Parents: As your Communities in Schools Site Coordinator here at Broad Rock, I complete an annual Needs Assessment, seeking feedback from students, parents, and school staff about our school and the needs of our students. We encourage you to take a moment to complete this brief, anonymous survey so that your feedback may be taken into consideration as we plan student supports for the 2021-2022 school year. Please use this link to complete your survey.

Thank you for your feedback and participation!

Ms. Arrowsmith (Communities in Schools Coordinator)

SOL In-Person Testing

In-person SOL testing will occur at Broad Rock Elementary School. Students will report to the site at 8:30 am. Students should bring their Chromebook and charger with them. They will test on their device. There will be no retakes this year. Breakfast and lunch will be provided on-site for students. Students are also welcome to bring snacks and water. Transportation is available for students if it was selected on the parent survey.
