The Tripod Project
Student Feedback Survey
As part of our effort to provide teachers insightful student feedback, your child will be asked to complete a short, confidential survey on November 14 or 15th.
This survey is designed by The Tripod Project, a consortium of schools and districts working together to close the academic achievement gap. Our district has decided to pilot the Tripod student perception surveys this year and the information will be used to provide feedback for teachers and administrators.
Student responses to these surveys will provide important information about their classroom experience. Our goal is to better understand the student perspective as we strive to address the learning needs of all students.
