Family Engagement Survey 2017

We are very interested in the perspective of our district families and believe it is an important part of our planning. Our family/school partnership is central to our students’ successes. We are asking our district families (including students) to help us improve our school/community partnerships by taking The Family Engagement Survey.

You can complete this simple survey by clicking the link below and entering the password (which is Family2017). It is available in English and Spanish. The survey will be open from March 13 to April 13, 2017. 

We thank you in advance for your participation in this voluntary survey. Below is the full letter from Superintendent Anthony Taibi (download as PDF here).

Dear Families,

I want to share with you the process we will be going though as part of our continued efforts to gather input from parents/guardians and the community. We are very interested in the perspective of our district families and believe it is an important part of our planning. Our family/school partnership is central to our students’ successes.

We will be providing our families with a link to The Family Engagement Survey. This will be posted to our website on March 13, 2017. The survey will be open from March 13 to April 13, 2017. You can complete this simple survey by clicking the link and entering the password (which is Family2017).

The survey has 50 questions that are rated on a five-part scale. In addition, there are two open-ended questions for our families to offer comments. All survey responses are anonymous; respondents are not identified. The Family Engagement Survey will be available in languages other than English. For languages other than English and Spanish, please contact the District Office by clicking here (communications@cairodurham.org). We ask that you complete only one survey per household.

Additionally, as part of this process, our staff and students will be completing surveys. This will allow us to have a comprehensive database that will be integral for our planning.

We have selected PLC Associates, Inc. to administer these assessments, compile the data and provide comprehensive reports, which will be very helpful to us in planning forward. PLC Associates, Inc. has worked with hundreds of schools and is certified by the New York State Department of Education as a provider of these instruments. The company abides by a strict code of conduct in administering these surveys and is known for its exemplary level of delivery.

We appreciate your assistance in completing this important survey. If there are questions or need for clarifications, please contact myself at 518-622-8534, ext. 25010.  Parents are such an important part of what we do and we are grateful for our families taking the time to respond. It is important for our schools and our students. We look forward to your input as we continue to grow our family and school partnership. 

Thank you.

Sincerely,

 

Anthony J. Taibi

Superintendent of Schools
