2019-2020 Parent School Experience Survey (Click Here)

The 2019-2020 School Experience Survey window is now open. The School Experience Survey is an annual survey administered in the fall to all LAUSD schools. Take this survey to share what you think about your and your child’s experiences with his or her school.
After completing the online survey, please print a paper copy of your submission OR take a picture of your submission and text it to your child. The advisory teacher will be checking for evidence of parent participation in the School Experience Survey. Help us reach our goal of 100% parent participation. If we can reach this goal, students can have a non-uniform day.
