Educator Survey

Part of my continuous growth and reflection as a site leader requires continuous feedback. I know all of you are extremely busy this time of year and I appreciate your participation in this annual survey. I promise the survey will take no longer than 5-10 minutes. Here is the link to the Flowery Educator Survey, 2016.

Flowery is a Spanish/English dual immersion school, providing all students with the opportunity to become bilingual, biliterate and bicultural. Begun in 1998 with one kindergarten class and a $1,000,000 federal grant, dual immersion now spans grades K-5 at Flowery and grades 6-8 at Adele Harrison Middle School. We are proud to offer this high quality program of choice for Sonoma County families, and are committed to educating all children for success in a global society.
