2024 Communications Survey

  • Introduction

    The Communications Office is currently gathering insight from parents, students, and staff about our current and future communication interests.

    The 2024 survey series aligns with a goal set at the beginning of the school year and also helps a volunteer Task Force currently working internally to define two-way communication and engagement requirements that support ongoing school-to-home engagement and relationship building to benefit all students.

    You can read more about the 2024 Communication Survey Series in the Smore sent on Thursday, January 18, 2024.
