PARENT SURVEY

Wolf Canyon is conducting an online parent survey now through March 20 to learn more about your experiences and your child(ren’s) experiences at school with teachers, administrators, students, and other district staff. All responses are anonymous and will never be connected to you. Your answers will be kept strictly confidential. Reporting will rely on grouped percentages only. If both parents/guardians in a household would like to take the survey, that is fine. However, we ask that each adult only take the survey once, and do so by March 20th, 2015.
