2018-2019 School Experience Survey for Parents (ENGLISH)

The 2018-2019 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. Use the results to learn about your school climate with your children, teachers, administrators and other parents.
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 free dress day.
