literacy planning survey for caregivers

The Mohawk Trail and Hawlemont Regional School System is planning to rework our approach to literacy in grades PK-8 so that our programs, teaching approach, and support for students are consistent in all schools and are based on research about how children learn to read.
We would like the input of caregivers to support this process. Please complete these questions based on your child's experiences* in the Mohawk Trail-Hawlemont System. The survey will be open until Friday 4/23 at 5:00 PM.
*This is a great time to talk with your child (or children) about their experiences in English Language Arts/Literacy at school. If you are unsure how to answer a question, please ask them for their input.
