An important element of the new Choctaw Project RISE is parent participation. Parents are involved at all levels of the project, from signing up children for specific classes or activities, to providing feedback, and to suggesting additional services. 
 
This survey asks you to select opportunities for culturally relevant education and native enrichment programs for your Native American students. Please complete one survey for each of your children. The DEADLINE for your responses is June 30, 2021.
 
The survey also asks you to provide additional suggestions for programs.  You will also have an opportunity to express comments regarding the quality of the program your student(s) attended at the end of each year or term.
 
The survey asks for identifying information.
This is needed so that we can place children in the selected activities and to communicate directly with you.
