New District Survey Seeks Parents’ Feedback

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Parents with children in the Portland Public Schools are invited to participate in a new survey about their experiences in the district.  The survey was created to enhance parent and community voice in the school system.

The survey is posted online.  It is available in all of the major languages spoken by district families.  Paper copies, including Khmer translations, will be available at each school during parent-teacher conferences.  The survey will close at the end of conference season in April.

The survey seeks parents’ views on topics such as whether schools provide a rigorous curriculum, whether children feel engaged by school, whether teachers set high expectations and whether parents would recommend their school to others. 

The survey asks several questions about the principal’s management of the school.  Parents also have a space where they may write additional comments. 

The survey is voluntary and anonymous.  Parents are asked to submit one survey for each child attending district schools.  All parent feedback will be reviewed.

If you have questions about the survey, please contact Chanda Turner, the district’s family and community engagement coordinator, at turnecatportlandschools [dot] org or call her at 842-5356.
