REMINDERS FROM COAH – ALL SCHOOLS: 

Please share your Remote Learning Feedback with City on a Hill by Wednesday, May 27

Leaders at CoaH want to learn more about what students, parents and staff are experiencing during this time of remote learning to better improve our district/network’s communication and support.

Please click here https://tntp.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_2a60AQW9ErX1mbr to take a short 2-3 minute survey.

  • Completing this survey is voluntary and all responses are anonymous.
  • Remember to click SUBMIT at the end of the survey to make sure your responses are received!

Parents/Guardians: If you have more than one child in our schools, take the survey once per child. (Example: Click on the survey link and answer all questions as they relate to your first child. When finished, click SUBMIT, then click the survey link again to take a second time, answering all questions related to the second child.)

Your voice is critical in helping leaders across our schools better understand what is working well and what can be improved during this time. We are looking forward to your feedback!

REMINDERS FROM COAH – BOSTON
