FY 18 Parent and Family Engagement Survey

Laurens County Schools are continually looking to improve ways to engage parents in our programs and schools. Your input is vital in the planning and implementation of the parent and family engagement program and activities in our schools. The focus of all Title I programs is to help eligible students meet the same high academic achievement standards expected of all children, regardless of their socioeconomic status and background. The following survey is confidential and will be used to assist us with future planning for parent engagement activities and events at our schools. We appreciate your feedback, and thank you for taking the time to complete this survey. Paper copies are available upon request.
