We Need Your Help!

We need our parents to complete this survey to help inform our decisions regarding instructional technology. Your help with this is greatly appreciated.

The survey links are specific to our campus so you may receive links from multiple campuses if you have more than one student in MISD. We ask that you take the survey for each school so we can make the best decisions for CMS. Thank you!
