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.
