County survey seeks ways to improve schools, communication

Clark County is conducting a survey to learn ways it can better communicate with parents, teachers and community members and improve its public schools.

“We’d like to find out the best ways to communicate with you, gather your input, and support your participation in your child’s education,” Clark County Commissioner Mary Beth Scow wrote to parents in a memo.

“If you’re a teacher … we’d like to find out how you view parental and community engagement in terms of scholastic achievement of students,” the statement said.

Scow, who represents District G that includes Boulder City, said the county also would like to hear from community members who aren’t parents or teachers in the school district.

“We’d like to find out if you would like to be engaged with your neighborhood public school … and how you could become more involved with activities and improvements,” the statement said.

To take the survey, visit http://goo.gl/forms/WaJGdiWVGZ before Tuesday.
