Parent survey
Technology Use Survey and Parent Survey
Published: Sun, Apr 15, 2018, 03:57PM CDT

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Coppell ISD is asking for you to complete two, brief surveys that will assist the district in its annual assessments of technology use, as well as provide an opportunity for parents to share their satisfaction with CISD. Your input is a crucial and valuable component of our planning for the next academic year. Please note that these surveys are for annual planning purposes and are separate from the recent CISD Strategic Design Survey sent earlier this year.

One survey is the Parent Survey, which will gather your input to help each campus improve their interactions with families. The survey will take approximately two minutes to complete. Your students will be taking a similar survey at school, so it is important to have the parent perspective to coincide with the students.

Please follow this link to the Parent Survey: http://tinyurl.com/2018parsur.

Also, CISD is continuing its partnership with BrightBytes, an educational research organization, in order to learn more about our students’ school and home technology use for learning. We are reaching out to ask you to take part in the Technology & Learning Questionnaire. Your participation is essential in helping us form a more complete picture of technology use for learning in our students’ lives. Please know that all of your responses will remain anonymous to protect your privacy. This is a national survey that allows us to compare data sets at the regional, state and national levels. Surveys will be conducted each year in the fall and spring. Students also will be taking this survey, and we would be interested in your input and insight. The Technology Survey will take you approximately 7 to 9 minutes to complete in total.

Please follow this link to our specific Clarity campus survey: www.BByt.es/GM4WP.

Note: if you have students at other campuses, that means you will need to complete multiple surveys. You will receive an email from the principals of these specific campuses that your other children attend with their campus specific questionnaire link.

Thank you for your time,

Chantel Kastrounis
