Parent Survey Results
In the spring of 2008, the District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS) administered a telephone poll for DCPS parents/guardians. The purpose of the survey was to obtain feedback about how satisfied parents were with school district services, how things were going in the schools, what current needs were, and whether or not these needs were being met. This information will be used for planning and for measuring performance over time.
