It’s hard to believe we’re already mid-way through the current school year. Signs this is true are the flyers being sent home to recruit parent volunteers for Spring Celebration as well as the four tubs of frozen cookie dough that were just shoved into the freezer (purchased from the holiday fundraising drive). As more and more schools look to parent volunteers to run school programs, increase fundraising activities, and help support teachers in the classroom, we are seeing many schools turn to SurveyMonkey as a fast and easy way to reach out to parents, gather useful feedback, and even sign up volunteers.
There are a variety of parent feedback surveys conducted on SurveyMonkey and we’ll be sharing several different examples in posts this month. We’re kicking off the series with one focused on gathering Parent Volunteer feedback. With this survey, you can see which school programs have the highest level of parent participation, understand the relationship between participation and volunteering, and even identify parents who may be interested in leading future programs. We also use skip logic in this survey so that only parents who answer “Yes” to being open to providing more feedback and attending follow-up meetings will be asked to provide their contact information.
