This semester, we have reached out to our parent and staff communities in new ways to hear your voice. Below you’ll find results of both the 2016-17 Parent Survey and the Focus Group Series that was held for parents, staff and administrators earlier this year.
2016-17 Parent Survey
426 parents and guardians responded to the 2016-17 Parent Survey. Over-arching themes included the desire for:
- Deeper and more frequent communication with teachers and schools — especially as students get older
- More stories and information on what’s happening in the classroom, features on students who may not typically be in the spotlight, and updates on the projects funded by Props I+N
- One location for all district, school and teacher communications, with a more functional and searchable calendar
- More ways for parents to be involved and engaged, suggestions and programs to learn how parents can better support their kids

2017 Focus Group Series
Throughout the month of January, the Citizens Advisory Council organized a series of discussion groups as a chance to capture the voice of parents and staff at each school, as well as administrators in a separate group.
