Parent Surveys are Here!! Encuestas para los padres están aquí!


Every other year, we are required to survey all parents about their experiences with Escuela Verde. We are asking that all parents participate in this very important survey. The results will be analyzed by the Children's Research Center and shared with Milwaukee's Common Council, our charter authorizer.
