    parent satisfaction survey

    Dear Brown-Barge families,

    Our district continues its journey to make our schools the best places for students to learn, staff to work, and parents to send their children for a good education. In this effort, we appreciate your support. It is important to gather feedback from you to celebrate successes and identify areas for growth. Please take a few minutes and complete this Parent Satisfaction Survey to help provide this feedback.

    Once the survey is complete, the results will be analyzed by an outside organization. The data from the survey will be sent to each school and the Superintendent. Then, the results of the survey will be shared with parents and the community.

    The survey can be accessed through April 22 online at: ECSD Parent Satisfaction Survey or on your mobile device with the attached QR code.

    This has been an unprecedented time for everyone, though we are making it TOGETHER!

    Thank you for interest in and support of your child’s education with us. Please contact me if you have any questions concerning the survey.

    Joe Snyder, Proud Principal of BBMS

    3.    Your child’s 6-digit ECSD student ID number
