HMS Updates

  • The Sand Creek Zone is on a journey to make our schools the best places for students to learn, staff to work, and parents to send their children for a good education. Parent satisfaction is a goal that is included in our Zone Plan and this survey helps us determine how we are doing and what we might to serve you better.  It is important to gather feedback from you to celebrate successes and identify areas for growth.


    Please take a few minutes to complete the anonymous Parent Satisfaction Survey to  provide us feedback.


    Once the survey is complete, the results will be analyzed by an outside organization. The data from the survey will be sent to each school and the Zone Leader. The results of the survey will be shared with parents and the community. 


    The survey can be accessed online at: SCZ Parent Satisfaction Survey


    Thank you for interest in and support of your child’s education with us. Please contact me if you have any questions concerning the survey.
