How do I ensure that surveys get to families?
You can choose from online, paper, PDF, or a combination of these survey options to make sure that families are receiving their surveys. Based on the goals of the survey program and the quality of data in your SIS, we can provide access to surveys in a variety of ways.
- Online Surveys: All families with email addresses receive a unique survey link to complete their surveys. Online, confidential surveys offer the opportunity for very accurate response-rate tracking.
- Mailed Paper Surveys: Paper surveys can be mailed to schools to be backpacked home with students or direct-mailed to families’ homes. Letters can also be included with the survey that give information about how to take the survey online.
- Combination: Many of our districts and schools opt to do a combination of these options to ensure that families are able to submit their feedback.
