2019 SurveyWorks is Here! Scituate High Code: 30104family

Each year, the RI Department of Education asks families to complete an anonymous survey. The data from this survey will be reported on our yearly school accountability rating. This year, we hope to get as close to 100% as possible! Let's show the state that the Scituate Spartans are the best!

The SurveyWorks Stakeholder Survey Initiative is an effort to gather information that will help improve the quality of schools across Rhode Island. The surveys capture and assess information that helps educators understand and act upon what students, teachers, support professionals, administrators, and parents say about the climate, culture, and learning environments in their schools. The survey window will close on March 31, 2019.
