Action Requested: Parent/Family Survey
Sumner School District schools are committed to continuous improvement and as part of our school improvement process, every school in our district develops and implements a School Improvement Plan that is tailored to its specific needs each year. Our schools analyze a variety of information sources – including student performance trends, state comparisons and staff/parent perception surveys – to identify improvement goals that are specific, data-driven and measurable. To help each of our schools understand its strengths and challenges in areas known to impact educational effectiveness, we would appreciate your input on how our schools are doing.
Below is a link to an online, multiple-choice survey, available in both English and Spanish. We ask that you please complete and submit the survey by March 27, 2015. If you have more than one child in the Sumner School District, you may complete a survey for each school your children attend. Please complete each survey so that all of your children’s schools will benefit from your feedback.
The survey questions were developed by the Center for Educational Effectiveness, a Bellevue, Washington-based educational research firm, in collaboration with the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction for Washington State. As a cost savings measure, our district has moved away from paper surveys, to electronic versions made available to parents. However, if internet access is an issue, please ask for a hard copy survey available at all reception areas.
We truly appreciate your time and participation. Your feedback is very important to our ongoing school improvement efforts as we endeavor to make our schools the very best for the students who attend them.

Hi Laker Families,
Our Spring Conferences this year will be on Tuesday, March 24 and Thursday, March 26. These days are early release dates for our students and our dismissal time will be 11:40 a.m. Breakfast and lunch will be served on both of these early dismissal days. Unlike our fall conferences, not all of our students will have a conference. If you do not receive an invitation from your child's teacher to attend a conference, it is not necessary to plan a meeting time. However, if you would like to have a conference, please contact your child's teacher.
