Parent Surveys

Your student received our school and district Title 1 Surveys in your child’s folder.  As a parent/guardian of a child attending a Title 1 school, you are an important part of the Title 1 team.  Your input is vital in the planning and implementation of all activities and programs provided by the District. The surveys are confidential and will assist us with future planning for family engagement initiatives and events in the District as well as at Compton Elementary.  Please complete and return the surveys you receive today to your child’s teacher or you may complete the surveys online through the link provided on the Compton web page.  We greatly value your input as we plan for the 2018-2019 school year.
