Family Satisfaction survey

Take the Family Satisfaction Survey

How is our school doing? Are we welcoming and inviting? Do we have high expectations? Does your child feel safe at school?
Please let us know by completing a simple survey of our school’s climate and connectedness. The results of this survey help us gauge how we’re doing as a school and as a district. Results also help measure progress toward our Destination 2020 parent satisfaction and student safety goals. Our goals and areas of focus are based on your responses, so it’s important to us that you complete this survey. We appreciate your time and consideration.

2016 Climate and Connectedness Student Survey – Grades 3 – 12 only

The 2016 Climate and Connectedness Student Survey is being administered to provide schools with information about perceptions and experiences related to school climate and student connectedness for use in setting school goals and resources. 

This is an annual survey implemented and analyzed by the ASD Assessment and Evaluation department with assistance of the American Institutes of Research. The survey will be taken February 8 – February 26, 2016.

This survey does not require parental permission and is administered to students in grades 3 – 12. If parents would like to request that their student does not complete this survey, please contact your student’s school. This message serves as a notice to parents about this upcoming survey.

Our renovation is continuing and there are some changes at Airport Heights for the 2nd semester.

All primary classrooms have been moved to the newly renovated wing.

Please take note of new traffic patterns for student drop-off and pick-up.

  • Buses will move to the front of the school on Alder Street.
  • The Parent Drop-off/Pick-up lane is extended with a new entrance at 15th and Alder
  • 16th Avenue will not be a good pick up area for students– the entire south wing is under construction.

Thanks for your patience during our renovation. Our first priority is safety. Please let us know about any problems or concerns that you have.
