Hello Indian Run Families,

When we return from spring break we are excited to continue engaging our students with learning opportunities and activities that will challenge and grow them as learners. Until then, have a safe and relaxing Spring Break!

Panorama Email Sent to Families

Dear Dublin Families,

Student well-being is an essential component of educating the whole child. During the weeks of April 4-15, Dublin City Schools students in grades 3-12 will participate in a questionnaire asking their perceptions about school and student support.

There are two versions of the questionnaire, one for students in grades 3-5 and one for students in grades 6-12. Parents and guardians can review the script that staff will read to students prior to the questionnaire, the questions that will be asked, review our Panorama for Education Questionnaire FAQ and/or opt their child out by using the links below.

When completing the questionnaire, students will be encouraged to reflect on their own mindsets, approaches to learning, and feelings about school. The results will help us to better understand how we can alleviate barriers to learning, promote a culture of inclusivity and belonging, and how to best support the needs of students.

If you have questions about how this questionnaire helps us meet District goals or the process we use, please contact Dublin City Schools’ Director of Student Wellbeing, Tyler Wolfe at

This is the script that teachers will read to students:
