After school Programing Survey

In Summer 2022, Caroline County Public Schools (CCPS) engaged the services of FourPoint Education Partners, with support from the Maryland Leads Initiative, to assess and recommend strategies for strengthening and expanding school- and community-based afterschool and summer program offerings. As part of this review, FourPoint Education is conducting surveys with students, parents, and teachers to collect feedback on afterschool and summer programs and activities. Survey data will be a critical component of the findings and recommendations provided by the FourPoint team.

The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. Please provide candid feedback. Your responses will be completely confidential. Please complete the survey by December 7th. Thank you for your participation in and support for this effort.
