Mukilteo School District conducting parent survey

Mukilteo School District parents are invited each year to take part in a short survey about their child’s school. The survey asks parents a series of questions, such as whether they feel welcome at the school, if their child feels safe at school, and if they have a positive impression about the quality of education.

The results will be used by schools in developing School Improvement Plans and will help schools and the school district improve communications with parents.
