Parent Feedback Survey, Volunteer Survey, Spring SLP Meetings + Black Excellence Gala this Friday! - March 2nd, 2019

Dear Sierra Families,

We invite you to participate in the Spring 2019 Summit Public Schools Community Survey. Your opinions matter! Every year, thousands of Summit families complete surveys like this one, and that data generates tons of insights about how to make their children’s schools better. Your voice will help Summit’s leaders make the right decisions for your child, now and in the future.

The survey consists of a series of multiple-choice questions plus an open-ended type question at the end where you can write in your response. The survey should only take you about 20 minutes to complete. Before the open-ended question, there are a few demographic questions. These questions are optional and are used only by us to give context to our data findings.

All of your answers are secure and kept confidential. We do not ask your name and there is no way for us to identify your specific answers. Rather we are interested in the views of parents across the entire Summit community. We encourage you to talk with your children and their teachers about your ideas for using technology effectively for learning.

By being part of the Summit Public Schools Community Survey you are sharing your ideas to improve education. Please feel free to encourage your friends and fellow parents to participate.

SPRING MENTOR, STUDENT, FAMILY MEETINGS (SLP MEETING):
Family meetings will be mandatory for students who are not yet passing all classes. These will be short meetings of 15 minutes to ensure that mentors communicate to both families and students what needs to be done for students to pass their courses and stay on track to graduation. Your mentor will reach out to you to schedule these next week. They will take place on Wednesday, March 13th. If your student is not failing courses, but you would like to schedule a meeting with your mentor, great! Please email your mentor to schedule a time to meet.

Take care,
Malia, Ayanna, Dan, and Stefan
