Stakeholder Survey for PYLUSD-

Each year, the Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District (PYLUSD) conducts a survey to gather valuable insight from parents, students, teachers, and staff. Your feedback is extremely important and will help PYLUSD make good decisions to improve our schools.

A link to this year's survey is here: www.surveymonkey.com/r/2020_Parents

This survey will take approximately 8 minutes to complete. It will be available until Tuesday, February 11, 2020. Please provide your input as soon as possible. You are encouraged to complete the survey more than once if you have students at multiple schools.

If you do not have access to a computer, please call your student's school. They will provide you the opportunity to complete the survey on a school computer.


PTSA Bingo Night Fundraiser- On February 1st is the PTSA Bingo Night. This is a fundraiser hosted by the YLMS PTSA. This adult-only function has a limited number of tickets still available. See the flyer below for more information. bingobabyylms.eventbrite.com


Speak Up Survey- The Speak Up Survey is administered by the non-profit group Project Tomorrow. The purpose is to obtain input from all education stakeholders, administrators, teachers, students, support personnel, and parents, about the different ways technology can impact student learning. The data is then taken to Washington DC and state capitals and shown to the politicians who control the purse strings for education. The goal is that if the politicians see the huge amount of data showing positive ways technology can benefit student learning then they will change their budgets accordingly. Your input is a valuable piece of this data and we appreciate your time in taking this survey. How to access the survey:
