Dear Parents & Guardians of Students in Grades K-12:
Your feedback about our public schools is important to us. This year, we respectfully request a few moments of your time to complete the School Quality Survey (SQS), which measures your perceptions of the safety and well-being of your child and your satisfaction and involvement/engagement with your child’s school. Your responses will be kept confidential in order to gather candid information and will be used by schools for continuous improvement purposes. As a parent/guardian, this is an opportunity for your voice to be heard.
A parent/guardian may complete one survey per child. You may complete the SQS online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2023SQSParent or by scanning the QR code below. Schools may have a computer with internet access available to complete the survey at the school site. If you do not have internet access, you may request a paper survey, one for each child in grades K-12, no later than February 24, 2023. Your school may have hard copy surveys; if not, please request a survey by calling (808) 733-4008 or toll-free at (855) 276-5801, Monday through Friday from 7:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
This letter and the survey questions have been translated into 14 languages (Cebuano, Chinese simplified, Chinese traditional, Chuukese, Hawaiian, Ilokano, Japanese, Korean, Marshallese, Samoan, Spanish, Tagalog, Tongan, Vietnamese) and are available at http://arch.k12.hi.us/reports/sqs. Please click on the drop-down arrow for “School year” and select 2022-2023; then click on the drop-down arrow “Filter by” and select Translations for your language; finally, click on the drop-down arrow “For” and select Parent Letter or Survey to obtain translated documents. If your language is not available, please call your school for assistance.
Please read the survey directions carefully and complete the paper or online survey by the deadline of March 10, 2023. Responses are due by the deadline in order to be included in the final report.
Should you have any questions about this survey, please contact us via email at [email protected], or call (808) 733-4008 from 7:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Neighbor island parents may call toll-free at (855) 276-5801.
