Reminder: Family Engagement Survey Closes on Friday

You’ve probably seen or heard about the ACPS Family Engagement Survey, but have you taken it?

So far we’ve heard from hundreds of parents and guardians, but we need to hear from more. If you are not one of them, we’d like to hear from you!

Time is running out to share your thoughts about family engagement at ACPS through the online survey, which closes on Friday, March 29. Your feedback will help ACPS better understand the resources and services that families need to fully engage in their child’s education and what barriers may get in the way. Please take a moment to take the survey today and encourage others to do the same.

How is your school engaging parents and families?

Take the Parent/Guardian Survey

The survey is available in English, Spanish and Arabic online. Paper copies are also available in English, Spanish, Arabic and Amharic at all schools. The anonymous survey about how your child’s school is engaging parents and families should take about 10 minutes to complete.

If you have more than one child attending a school in ACPS, please complete the survey for your oldest enrolled child, or you can complete the survey for each child separately.

This survey is part of a division-wide evaluation of family engagement in ACPS from pre-K through grade 12. As part of our commitment to partnering with families in the education of Alexandria’s youth, the evaluation is being conducted jointly by ACPS and an external third party to help identify strengths and areas for improvement in engaging all families. The evaluation will focus on five main areas at the school level: relationships, activities and future desires, decision-making, school environment and communication.
