    Leader in Me: Parent Survey

    Our school is implementing a whole-school transformational process called “The Leader in Me,” which teaches 21st century leadership and life skills to students and creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader.  Starting Friday May 24, and concluding Friday, May 31, the Avoca Central School will be conducting surveys to learn more about key areas of strength and areas of needed growth in our school. The data from these surveys will help us to formulate a holistic picture and to implement key practices that will positively affect the school’s culture.  

    All ACS employees, students (4th-12th grades) and parents are asked to participate in this survey.  Employees and students will be filling the survey out during school hours. The link provided below is for parents to use at their earliest convenience.  

    When taking the survey please respond according to the experiences of your oldest child.  (No identifiable information is required.) While this survey is not mandatory, it is our hope that at least 80% of our parents will choose to provide us with their thoughtful opinions. Thank you.
