AdvancED Parent Survey – please help!
Lexington County School District One and all of its schools are participating in a continuous improvement process through AdvancED. AdvancED is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that conducts rigorous, on-site external reviews of Pre-K through Grade 12 schools and school systems to ensure that all learners realize their full potential and help schools improve. As a parent, you have an important role in this process. Lexington Elementary School is using the AdvancED Parent Survey to get your opinions.
There are five sections on the survey representing the five AdvancED Standards for Quality School Systems. Your answers to the survey will help our school by giving us your expectations as parents of a high-quality school system, by helping us target areas in which we need to improve and by identifying areas in which we continue to be effective.
Your opinion as a parent is important to us, and we ask you to take a few minutes to complete an online survey. In order to complete the survey, just click on this link:
http://www.advanc-ed.org/survey/public/2713004 or copy the link and paste it into your web browser now.
The online survey is open now, through Friday, October 21, 2016. Your responses to this survey are completely anonymous, and we would appreciate your honest feedback. If our school has the highest percent of our parents participating in this parent survey among the district’s elementary schools, our school will win ice cream for all our students. Just another great reason to participate! If you have any questions about this survey, please contact James Hamby at firstname.lastname@example.org or 803-821-4000.
Thank you for supporting our district’s and our school’s efforts to improve. Our parents’ perspectives are vital to the process.
James H. Hamby, Principal
