The Family Engagement Survey

As the City School District of Albany continues to work through the Diagnostic Tool for School District Evaluation (DTSDE) Review that the State Education Department requires of our schools, we would welcome your input as an important part of that work. Our family/school relationships and partnerships are central to your students’ success.

 

Please participate in The Family Engagement Survey. Each school will have its own survey with questions that are unique to that school, along with questions that focus more broadly on district-wide matters. Each school has its own password for the online survey. You will get a letter from your children’s school or schools that will include the password.

  • Elementary families -- Please watch your child's backpack for a letter from school that will include your password. You also can follow the link to your school below to download your principal's letter.

  • Middle- and high-school families -- A letter with your school's password is being mailed home. Please watch for it during the holiday break. You also can follow the link to your school below to download your principal's letter.

You also can pick up a paper copy of the survey at your children’s schools. The survey will be open through Jan. 24. Each survey is also available in our top five languages other than English – Arabic, Burmese, Karen, Pashtu and Spanish. All versions of the survey can be accessed from the individual school pages below:

The survey is easy to complete – just click on the school link, enter the password and begin. The survey has 25 questions that are rated on a five-part scale. There also are three open questions for you to offer your comments. All survey responses are anonymous; respondents are not identified.

 

We ask that there be one survey per household (if you have students in more than on school, then one survey per household for each of your children’s schools).

 

We also will ask all of our staff and our students in grades 3-12 to complete similar surveys. This will allow us to have a comprehensive database important for our planning.

 

We appreciate your help in providing this meaningful feedback. If there are questions or if you need clarification, please contact our Office of Curriculum and Instruction at (518) 475-6060. Parents and guardians are such an important part of what we do, and we are grateful to you for taking the time to respond. We look forward to your input.

 

Yours in education,

Kaweeda G. Adams

Superintendent of Schools
