The deadline to submit your NYC School Survey isTHIS FRIDAY, April 1st!
Lost your survey? Just call the Survey Hotline (1-800-690-8603) to get a new code.
The survey helps school leaders understand what key members of the school community say about the learning environment at each school. The information captured by the survey is designed to support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn.
The 2015-2016 version of the NYC School Survey is aligned to the DOE's Framework for Great Schools. The survey will collect vital information about a school's capacity to improve student achievement by measuring the extent to which each school incorporates the six essential elements- rigorous instruction, supportive environment, collaborative teachers, effective school leadership, strong family and community ties, and trust-that drive school improvement and develop students to compete in the 21st century. The survey will be one of multiple measures used to help the DOE assess the six essential elements.

Next PTA meeting: Thursday, March 31st @ 7pm. Concerned about growing class size?
