Parent Interest Survey Online

Parents and guardians, here’s your chance to tell us about what your child’s school does to include you in his or her education. Please complete the brief Family Partnership survey that is available online at www.fwps.org. The survey begins Monday, April 11, and closes Monday, April 25.

 You will receive an email invitation to participate, and the survey will be available in English, Spanish, Korean and Russian. If you have more than one child in the school district, you may complete this survey for each child. The survey will take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete.

Parents are welcome to go directly to the survey on the district website, www.fwps.org if they do not receive the email. Also, computers and paper copies of the survey will be available at student-led conferences to give parents another option for completing the survey.

 All answers will be treated in a confidential manner. Reports will not identify individuals. Data will be reviewed for participants as a group, not by individual responses. After the survey closes, we will report the findings publicly, sharing what we have learned from your feedback.

 

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts. Engaging in an ongoing two-way dialogue is critical as we work together to provide our students with the best possible education.

Please take this brief family involvement survey.

Strategic Planning Initiative

Creating a vision for our children’s future.

Federal Way Public Schools has embarked on a Strategic Planning Initiative to develop the vision and direction for enhancing student achievement and success in the coming years.

The strategic plan will be our roadmap toward a future vision and provides unity, clarity and direction to the important work of the district.

In developing our plan, the District will use an approach that is inclusive and intentional and values all voices, and will continuously engage all stakeholders within the Federal Way Public Schools community.

This work must be collectively developed by members of our greater school community. There will be many opportunities to provide input on the Strategic Plan over the course of the year. The online survey is the initial effort to gather input, a series of forums for students, families and communities is another opportunity for participation.

We hope you’ll join in shaping what our school system should do and be for our community’s children.
