November News and Events
Dear CPS Families:
We want to hear from you!
Columbia Public Schools regularly seeks feedback from parents regarding how our schools and district are doing.
This year’s school climate survey is only 13 questions and should take you less than 10 minutes to complete. All responses to this survey are anonymous.
If you haven't already, please share your thoughts based on your experiences and the experiences of your students. If you have students attending more than one school in the district, please feel free to complete this survey for each school.
Parent/Guardian School Climate Survey
The survey will remain open through October 31.
Thank you for taking the time to provide your student’s school and the district with valuable and important feedback that will help inform future planning!
Oakland Middle School Families,
As we enter the month of November, we wanted to let you know about a goal we have related to our student attendance. The state of Missouri wants all schools to have 90% of students in attendance 90% of the time. Last year, we had approximately 70% of our students in attendance 90% of the time. We want to raise this percentage by 5% and need your help. Please talk as a family about the importance of good attendance in school. When students are not in seat, they can fall behind in their learning. Help us keep your student(s) caught up in their classes by sending them to school every day. We are currently at 75.6%! Please continue to reinforce to your scholars the importance of attending school every day.
We will continue to include you in this process by providing you our attendance numbers each month in our Oakland Family Connections emails. Together we can reach our goal!
