As a parent or caregiver, your involvement in your child’s learning and school is valuable and important. Therefore, we invite you to participate by completing a family and community engagement survey. The responses that you provide to this survey are anonymous and will be used to help schools improve connections with parents and families. To ensure informed responses, this survey should be completed by the parent or guardian who has the most contact with your child’s school.
