The RI Dept. Of Education's SurveyWorks Opened on January 14th (See information Below)

Dear Parents:

The Rhode Island Department of Education is currently administering its yearly SurveyWorks Parent Survey, which is an opportunity for parents to provide feedback about our school and our children’s opportunities to learn. The survey results are most useful when all parents participate, so I am writing to ask you to participate in this survey.

Your views on matters like the safety of your child at school, the way students are taught, the condition of the school, and how connected you feel to this school are important. By taking this short survey you can help our school leadership and our parent-teacher organization to make improvements to our school. Responses are anonymous and cannot be linked to any individual; no one can tie your responses back to you.

You can take the short survey online between January 14th and March 31th. To take the survey, visit: surveys.panoramaed.com/ride then enter: 06116family to gain access to Tiogue School's Survey. Each school in the state has their own individual code.

Thank you,

Dom Giusti
