DPAC Mental Health and Technology Survey
This survey is to find out about mental health support needs in our community for children and youth. Additionally, Mission DPAC* is collecting information on the use of technology for learning. This information is to better inform the Mission District Parental Advisory Committee for the purposes of advocacy for students in Mission. Information collected will be anonymous and identifying data will not be collected.
