Dear Families –

At Flint Community Schools, we value your input and we know that parent and guardian involvement is critical to scholars’ success in school. We know you rely on regular updates and information from the district, and we wish to meet you where you are with the information you need. For that reason, we are issuing a parent and family survey to inform our updates to families, as well as enrollment efforts for the 2021-22 school year.

Your input is valuable and the survey will take about five minutes. Responses will remain confidential and one response per household is all we need. After the survey closes, FCS district leadership will review the responses to continue strengthening communication with our families. Please fill out the Google form by Friday, May 14. The link can be accessed here: https://forms.gle/8oxwCzNQH5eruNn66

We remain optimistic about our future and look forward to collaborating with our entire school community. Your input will continue to guide our efforts along with the district’s strategic plan. Our primary focus remains your scholar’s growth and well-being as we work to provide a high-quality education and support services to the families we are honored to serve. Thank you in advance for your participation.

Your partner in education,

Mrs. Anita J. Steward
