Student #1

This anonymous survey is designed to learn about how families engage with the DC public school landscape. If you have current students in your household, you will be asked about each student's experience starting with the oldest student. If you are a current student in DC public schools' adult programs, please answer the first section regarding your own experience. If you do not have any current students in your household but are yourself an employee of a school in DC, please skip down to Question 6.

This survey is anonymous, however if you would like to share your email address at the end of the survey you will be entered into a raffle for three $50 Amazon gift cards.

The first set of questions will ask about your child's experience in school, or your own experience if you are a current student in DC schools' adult programs. If you have more than one child in your household, please answer regarding your oldest child who is a current student.
