NORTH EUGENE PARENTS
PARENT & FAMILY ENGAGEMENT & PARTNERSHIP SURVEY
How well does our school communicate, engage and partner with you as parents? We would like to hear from you about your experiences and preferences, to help us improve in the future.
Please take a few minutes between now and Tuesday, May 31 to complete our school’s annual Parent & Family Engagement and Partnership Survey. The survey is online at www.surveymonkey.com/r/4Jparentpartnership2016_English
. If you would prefer to complete the survey on paper, you can pick up a copy in the school office.
This survey asks questions about our specific school and is different from the 4J Vision 20/20 district survey which was focused on strategic district visioning and planning. If you have questions or input about this survey, please call the 4J Instruction Department at 541-790-7550
Thank you for your time and input. Your feedback will be used to inform our efforts to continually improve our school and our partnership with parents to help students succeed.
Invitamos a los padres a dar su opinión por medio de una encuesta
¿Qué tan bien se comunica, participa y colabora con los padres nuestra escuela? Nos gustaría saber sus experiencias y preferencias para ayudarnos a mejorar en el futuro.
Favor de tomarse unos minutos entre el día de hoy y el 31 de mayo para completar la encuesta anual sobre la participación y colaboración de la escuela con los padres. La encuesta está disponible en la página web www.surveymonkey.com/r/4Jparentpartnership2016_Spanish
. Si prefiere completar la encuesta en papel, puede recoger una copia en la oficina de la escuela.
Esta encuesta tiene preguntas específicas acerca de nuestra escuela. Es diferente de la reciente encuesta del proceso 4J Visión 20/20, que se centró en la visión estratégica y la planificación del distrito. Si tiene alguna pregunta o comentario con respecto a esta encuesta, por favor llame al departamento de instrucción del distrito escolar al 541- 790-7550
Gracias por compartir su tiempo y sus opiniones. Sus opiniones y sugerencias se utilizarán para enfocar nuestros esfuerzos y mejorar de manera continua la escuela y nuestra interacción con los padres para ayudar a todos los estudiantes a tener éxito.
