DSW Survey 2016

Dear parents and teachers,

Your opinion counts and is an important reference point in our effort to remain an excellent school. As part of this ongoing endeavor, the Steering Committee is currently preparing an online survey to which you will receive an email invitation with a clickable link on February 11, 2016.

The parent survey will cover the topics of “Career and Higher Education Counseling” and “Communication between Teachers and Parents” as well as questions that will enable us to determine the current make-up of our school community: What languages are spoken at home? What are families planning for their kids after they graduate from the DSW – studying in Germany or in the U.S.?, etc. The information we are gathering will help us assess the needs of our school members. Therefore, we would like to urge you to please participate in this very important survey.

The survey among teachers will focus on the topic of ““Communication between Teachers and  Parents”. In this survey we hope for a 100% participation rate as well.

The participation of all parents and teachers is important, so that our survey results will be meaningful in the analysis phase that will follow the survey. Please mark your calendar: The survey will run from February 11 to February 29, 2016.

We thank you in advance for your participation!
