Parents and Stakeholders, It is the time of year when we reach out to our parents, guardians, and stakeholders to gain feedback/input as we begin planning for the 2022-2023 school year. This survey is one of the most important surveys that we extend to our school community. We will analyze the information gathered in this survey and use it to guide us as we plan for the upcoming school year. The survey is now open and will remain open for about three weeks. All feedback is anonymous. In order to collect feedback from you, we need you to take this survey only once for your child or children. Simply choose the school(s) that your child(ren) attends once you access the survey link. Our goal is to collect input from a minimum of 125 parents and stakeholders. If you have more than one child in the Ware County School District, you only need to do this survey once. Thank you in advance for your participation in this survey!
