Parent Satisfaction Survey

Dear Centennial Crew,

It’s time again for the annual Parent Satisfaction Survey. Surveys wwent home with your student today (April 4th) in a self-addressed, pre-paid envelope. The Parent Satisfaction Survey asks parents and guardians of students in Denver Public Schools to reflect on their experience with their students’ school. Results from the parent survey are reported back to schools in the summer, and are included in schools’ School Performance Framework. We are hoping for
100% participation on the survey. Students will be awarded a magic pen when their family completes the survey. Students can return their completed survey to the office to collect their magic pen.

Thanks!
