Dear Parent/Guardian/Caregiver,

The WV Board of Education requires all schools to engage in continuous school improvement. In doing so schools should engage in a data-driven school climate planning process, identify its needs, and work to increase school safety and create a positive learning environment.


To support that process schools will be doing surveys to gather information about the learning and teaching environment, the health and well-being of students, and supports for parents, school staff, and students that foster learning and success. This letter is about one of these surveys to learn about parents’ opinions about the schools their children attend.


Knowing how you feel about your child’s school is an extremely important part of improving schools, so we are inviting you to fill out a parent survey. The survey is completely voluntary. Although we value your opinion and hope you will participate, you may choose not to, or to not answer any question on the survey you do not want to answer. Also, you are not asked to provide your name or any other identifying information.


You can fill out the parent survey online at  

To access the survey you will need to enter this login code P037204.


The online parent survey will be available now through November 15, 2019.


If you have questions about the survey or have problems completing the survey, please contact your child's school.


When you log onto the survey you will see explanatory information about the survey and the important information below as to your rights as a survey participant:
