As a school district, we always look for ways to improve our educational programs and services for our students. To help us achieve this goal, we would like to gather your feedback on your perceptions of our District.

Please take a moment to complete our end-of-the-school-year Parent/Guardian Perception Survey.

The survey is designed to be quick and easy to complete, and all responses will be kept confidential. Your input will be used to help us identify areas where we excel and areas where we need to improve. The feedback we receive from families is critical to our success in providing the best possible education for our students.

As each child's school experience is different, please complete a separate survey for each student in your household.

Survey responses are due by Friday, May 26, 2023. We appreciate your time and effort in completing this survey and look forward to your feedback.
