Parent/Family Survey 2019-20

La Mesa-Spring Valley Schools values parent perspectives, and we are committed to engaging parents in the development of goals and activities related to the eight priorities of our Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). Our Parent/Family Survey for the 2019-20 school year is now open.  This on-line survey will help us gather information about instructional programs, school climate, and home/school communication.   If you prefer, you may complete the paper survey that your child will bring home.  Please complete the survey by January 24, 2020.
