Dear Parents,

To help ensure our federal funding, we are asked to gather input from families about some of the services and supports provided by the district. We are currently looking for feedback on the processes that are in place for families who have students entering a new school building. This includes entry into Kindergarten as well as transitioning to middle and high school. We are also interested in hearing from families who were new to the district. The more survey responses we receive, the better data we have. Please follow the link below to provide your input. The survey will close on Friday, April 13.
