Parent Satisfaction Survey

Our district is on a continuous journey to make our schools the best places for students to learn, staff to work and parents to send their children for a great education.  In this effort, we appreciate your support.  It is important to gather feedback from you to celebrate successes and identify areas for growth.  Please take a few minutes and complete this Parent Satisfaction Survey to help provide this feedback.

Once the survey is complete, the results will be analyzed by an outside organization.  The data from the survey will be returned to the District to be shared with each school, its parents and the community.

The survey can be accessed online at OCSD Parent Satisfaction Survey.  Our school may also provide you with a paper copy to complete.  The survey will be available through March 13, 2020.

Thank you for your interest in and support of your child's education with us.  Please contact Walker if you have any questions concerning the survey.
