PTA School of Excellence Family Survey
As a National PTA School of Excellence, families feel welcomed and empowered to support student success, and PTA is a key partner for continuous school improvement. We feel West Elementary School and West Elementary PTA can achieve that together- and the result will be national, state and community-wide visibility for the positive impact we are making together at West Elementary.
WE NEED YOUR HELP! As part of the process, National PTA requests feedback from families at two points in the school year- the beginning and the end. Your feedback in the beginning of the program will help to generate a customized Roadmap to Excellence, which will provide specific recommendations for improving our family-school partnership and achieving excellence.
Please take 5-10 minutes to reflect on your experience at this school and complete the attached survey. Mark the box that most accurately expresses how you feel about your experience. This survey is completely anonymous. Please complete it by 10/29/15.
I've invited you to fill out the form PTA School of Excellence Family Survey. To fill it out, visit the link:
