A Weekly Look at Grant Elementary School & the Grant PTA
Week of January 4, 2021
Youth Truth Survey This Month
What is Youth Truth?
We believe, and research shows that student and stakeholder voices matter.
We equip education leaders to integrate these on-the-ground insights into planning, professional development, and improvement processes. What would your school system look like if the unique perspectives of your students, families, and staff were central to decision-making? You'd likely see a happier, healthier, school system on the path to higher academic achievement.
Please look for a parent notification letter that will come with your 3rd-6th grade students this week.
Here is a link to more information: https://youthtruthsurvey.org/
What grades will the survey be conducted?
Grades 3 - 6 will take the survey.
When will they take the survey?
Your teacher will send out a message before the students take the survey in class. This survey will be given sometime before January 28th.
Is there a parent survey?
Yes, we look forward to collecting vital data from all stakeholders to make our school the best that it can be. The survey will be sent home to families next week.
