MDA Fall Parent 2017 Final

Wicomico County Schools Survey--Parent

Dear Parent(s) or Legal Guardian(s), Thank you for taking this survey! Your opinions are very important to developing better schools in your community. Your School District is dedicated to continually improving the education your child receives, and the most honest answers that you can provide to the following questions are greatly appreciated and important.

This survey is completely anonymous and confidential. We would like for you to feel comfortable with the fact that your answers will not be traced back to you. Your child, teachers, school leadership teams and district level staff will not see your answers. The questions relate to your feelings regarding your child’s school, schoolwork, teachers, school leadership teams and staff, and community.

Please read the directions for each section carefully and give your truthful opinion. If you have more than one child at the school, please try to think about one of your children as you answer the questions. If you are unable to answer a question or feel the need to refrain from answering a question, please leave it blank and go to the next question. After completing the survey, please follow the directions provided at the end to submit your survey. Thank you again for your participation, and sharing your valuable perceptions.
