PISD Parents and Families,

Paris ISD understands that parental involvement is crucial in supporting our schools as they meet student needs. Therefore, we invite you to participate by completing a short 23 question parent involvement survey.
 
Your answers will be kept confidential and will be used only in combination with those of other parents in a report of the survey findings. Your input is very important. Findings of the survey will be summarized and used to improve our efforts in strengthening the partnership between parents and their children's school.

If you have any questions or concerns about the survey, you may contact Karol Ackley at 903-737-7500 or karol.ackley@parisisd.net.

Thank you for taking the time to help us understand our strengths and opportunities for improvement.
