Screenshot: Fall 2018 Parent_Guardian Survey

Newark Unified School District strives for continuous improvement in our service to students and families. We achieve this through evaluating our outcomes, identifying strengths, developing recommendations for improvement, and refining our practices.

One of the ways we evaluate our strengths and find areas for improvement is by asking parents/guardians about their experiences and recommendations.

Please take a few minutes to provide us feedback that will inform our areas of focus for improvement, our Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP), and our future practices.

Logramos esto evaluando nuestros resultados, identificando fortalezas, desarrollando recomendaciones para mejora y perfeccionando nuestras prácticas.

Una de las maneras de evaluar nuestras fortalezas y encontrar áreas para mejora es preguntarles a los padres y tutores sobre sus experiencias y recomendaciones.
