Survey asks parents to critique curriculum

February 17, 2014 

For the last five years, Tacoma Public Schools has surveyed parents on the climate of their children’s schools, asking them to rate topics ranging from safety to student learning.

District officials say one subject has gotten consistently low marks by parents: the rigor of their child’s school work.

Now, the school district wants to ask parents how it can do better. The district has sent surveys via e-mail to parents across the district to solicit their opinions. Parents have until Feb. 28 to complete the survey. The district also plans to conduct focus groups with student leaders at district high schools to gain their perspective.
