Action Requested:  Parent/Family Survey

Sumner School District schools are committed to continuous improvement and as part of our school improvement process, every school in our district develops and implements a School Improvement Plan that is tailored to its specific needs each year.  Our schools analyze a variety of information sources – including student performance trends, state comparisons and staff/parent perception surveys – to identify improvement goals that are specific, data-driven and measurable.  To help each of our schools understand its strengths and challenges in areas known to impact educational effectiveness, we would appreciate your input on how our schools are doing.

Below is a link to an online, multiple-choice survey, available in both English and Spanish. We ask that you please complete and submit the survey by March 27, 2015.  If you have more than one child in the Sumner School District, you may complete a survey for each school your children attend.  Please complete each survey so that all of your children’s schools will benefit from your feedback. 

The survey questions were developed by the Center for Educational Effectiveness, a Bellevue, Washington-based educational research firm, in collaboration with the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction for Washington State.  As a cost savings measure, our district has moved away from paper surveys, to electronic versions made available to parents. However, if internet access is an issue, please ask for a hard copy survey available at all reception areas.
 
We truly appreciate your time and participation.  Your feedback is very important to our ongoing school improvement efforts as we endeavor to make our schools the very best for the students who attend them.


After-School Academic Support Bus

Beginning March 16, 2015, the Transportation Department will pilot a new after-school bus service for students who stay after school to receive academic support services.  For the remainder of the 2014-15 School Year, a bus will be available on Mondays and Wednesdays to transport students home from the following schools:

Lakeridge Middle School
Mountain View Middle School
Bonney Lake High School
Sumner High School

The Academic Support Bus will drive a limited route and will leave at approximately 4:15 p.m.  The routes will have limited stops due to servicing students located in a variety of areas.  Please check the District Website for bus stop locations nearest to your home address and estimated drop off times.  


March 13 - Waiver Applications Due

Students who wish to attend a school other than their resident school must complete a Waiver Application by March 13, 2015. All Waiver Applications and Release of Attendance forms (if applicable) need to be received by this date for optimal consideration.
