Frederick County Public Schools is asking parents to complete a perceptual survey about their children’s schools.
“Helping students work to their potential is a collaborative effort involving parents, students, schools and the community. FCPS values and appreciates feedback from parents and guardians. We use that feedback in tangible ways to improve schools and provide every student an excellent education,” says Superintendent Dr. Terry Alban. "We ask every FCPS family to help our schools by sharing their feedback."
Launched January 24 and extending through Friday, February 22, the survey is online, and each school is providing parents a letter with a school-specific link for taking the survey. Schools also have paper copies in English and Spanish. Parents with questions should contact their child’s school.
Responses are anonymous; each school will receive the feedback submitted but will not know who submitted it.
Simultaneously, FCPS is surveying teachers and other employees to learn their satisfaction levels with school climate and other aspects of employment with the school system. A random sample of students in grades 3-12 will participate in a student version.
