After School and Summer Program Needs Assessment

Hello Tarrant Parents and Friends! 
We are currently in the process of applying for continuing funding for "out of school" programs, typically after school and summer programs. In order to submit an application that is strong and more likely to be funded, we need to conduct a good needs assessment to know what the needs are in our community and in our schools. Therefore, we ask that you complete the following survey knowing that you are helping to inform programs offered for your own child(ren) and others in the community. Without grant funding, we could not offer any of the programs that we currently provide, including the K-6th after school program, S.P.R.OUT and SOLE Summer Camps. We believe that these programs are important and we need to hear from you to know what is important to you.  And we need your guidance for what we do in the future. So, know that you are answering anonymously and please answer to the best of your ability. Thank you so much for your willingness to provide feedback and your support of Tarrant City Schools!
