OCPS Parent Survey Spring 2017
In an effort to improve system practices, Discovery MS is conducting an AdvancED Parent Survey. This year we addressed concerns such as purchasing more laptops, had a schoolwide assembly addressing bullying, counselors recognizing students being kind to one another. You spoke and we listened. We value your opinion and ask that you take the time to complete this year’s survey. The survey will be available on our website until March 17, 2017. Please be assured that your responses to this survey will be anonymous. Thank you for your time and attention to this matter.
