One of the pieces of Idaho’s new schools accountability system is a parent survey conducted by the State Department of Education. The survey asks for parent input on several topics to help measure how Idaho schools are doing in meeting parent and student needs. Survey results will be shared on Idaho’s new school report card.
The survey asks questions related to a child’s specific school such as:
- Is there one caring adult at school who knows your child well?
- Does the school invite you to participate in school activities?
- Does your child’s school tell you how your child is doing in a way that makes sense to you?
The survey is available in both English and Spanish. Deadline is May 17.
Parents who have children who attend more than one school can take the survey multiple times by returning to the original link.
Links for the survey will be shared on district and school websites, social media, emails from the schools and district and the BCSD Weekly Update, the district’s weekly newsletter. Call 208-578-5005 for more information.
