Our school partners with BrightBytes - an educational research organization - to explore our use of technology for learning and improve support that is provided to your children.
We invite parents, teachers, and students to answer a few questions about your technology use. It should take only a few minutes to complete on any device with Internet access.
Teachers and students will complete during the school day. For our parents, if you have children at T. J. Connor and the Middle/High School, please consider completing both questionnaires so that we have a more complete picture of technology use for all of our students.
Surveys can be reached at https://www.wheatland.k12.ny.us/Domain/71.
Thank you for your support.
My School, My Voice Parent Survey
Please participate in the end of the school year Parent Survey to share what you think about your child’s school. This survey is anonymous and will take about five minutes to complete. Your answers will be combined with those of other parents in the District to describe what Wheatland-Chili parents think, do, and experience. This information will be available to parents.
This survey is voluntary. We hope that you will take the time to share your voice with us. Together, we can find better ways to communicate and provide customer service.
