Parent Surveys

Parental Involvement is key to the success of all stakeholders at J.W. Coon Elementary.  In December, we administered a parent survey to attain parental input into the decision-making process. Below are two links. The first link reflects the final tally for the multiple choice portion of the survey. The second link displays the results of the open-ended questions as well as the school’s responses to any questions or concerns.  Even if you did not complete a survey, we hope these answers will help you better understand the J.W. Coon experience.
