Parent Satisfaction Survey - Monday, March 6, 2017

PARENTS ENCOURAGED TO COMPLETE PARENT SATISFACTION SURVEY

The Arlington ISD is currently conducting a Parent Satisfaction Survey for parents to provide input on parent engagement for their child's school.

As a part of the Achieve Today. Excel Tomorrow. Strategic Plan, the Arlington ISD is committed to becoming a premier school district. Through this survey, we will determine where we are as a district so that we may set realistic, measurable goals for continuous improvement.

All parents are encouraged to complete the survey, available online here. The Parent Satisfaction Survey, which should take about 10 minutes, must be completed by March 31, 2017.
