Marion parents can tell school officials their feelings
The Marion County School district is providing parents with an opportunity to give their opinions about schools.
The survey that can be found on the school district website is meant to boost parental involvement. Marion County Public Schools Coordinator of Grants and Federal Programs Michelle Kernan says the district wants to give parents opportunities to participate in their children’s education.
The surveys ask questions about the leadership, education and conduct in the district. The responses are used by schools to create the following year’s school improvement plan. Surveys can also be found on the Parent Portal website and parents can contact schools for a hard copy.
All surveys must be filled out by March 26.
