MBEF PARENT SURVEY

Parent-SurveyAs a community-based foundation, the feedback and priorities of our parents are critical to our strategic direction and decision-making. This survey will only take 5-10 minutes of your time, and our goal is 100% parent participation. When we last surveyed MBUSD parents and teachers in 2014, 78% of parents and 75% of teachers said that their top priority for new MBEF funding was the expansion of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) programs. In the 2015/16 school year, our funding to the district was more closely aligned with this priority.

Please click here and let us know how/if your priorities have changed so that our funding can best represent the needs of our stakeholders.

If you have any questions about the survey, please direct them to Farnaz@mbef.org.
