For most of the last century, entry level jobs were plentiful and college was an affordable path to a fulfilling career. That world no longer exists. Our schools are preparing to meet this new world and we know that the best way to effect change is through broad community support. 
The following survey is part of a larger community conversation about school redesign. Please take a few moments to reflect on the issues of education in our community and how they apply to the everyday reality of our students.
The survey can be found at
