School Climate Survey Now Available
Beginning today, and continuing through March 16, 2018, our school will be administering school climate surveys. All parents/guardians are invited to participate.
The purpose of this survey is to gather input about school climate and the effectiveness of the teachers and administrators at our school. Responses are anonymous and no personal information will be collected. Reports will be made available for teachers and administrators to use in our school improvement efforts. The survey is short, taking less than 10 minutes to complete.
The survey can be accessed using the following link: https://uepc.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_b3pa40U69aHEoZf
There will also be computers available at parent teacher conferences coming up on March 14th and 15th if you would like to take the survey at that time. It is available in both English and Spanish.
Students in 2nd-6th grades will take the survey during school time. The first page of the survey allows the respondent to opt out of the survey by clicking “I do not wish to take the survey”. If you do not want your child to participate, your child may opt out at the time of administration.
Thank you in advance for your participation.
Meredith Doleac, Principal
