Annual parent survey shows appreciation for staff members and family engagement
Every year Lake Stevens School District surveys families to measure perception of schools and the district, and to gather feedback about programs, instruction and opportunities for students. The 2018-19 survey was shared with parents and guardians in June 2019. A total of 1,203 people participated. Of those, 85 percent identified themselves as mothers. The survey was available in English, Spanish and Russian.
The survey included 30 multiple choice questions, with opportunities to provide short answers to two of the questions. The majority of the questions were similar to those used in previous surveys to provide for analysis over time.
92.51 percent of respondents agree or strongly agree that they feel welcome at their child’s school

89.11 percent of respondents agree or strongly agree that they know how well their child is progressing academically

Respondents were asked to identify how they want to receive communication from our schools and the district. Email, text messages and information posted to school and district websites were the top three reponses.
