Methacton School District Notice

Dear Methacton Community,


In 2016, the district approved a Strategic Plan. As part of this plan, we are inviting one adult per household to complete a brief online survey. The results of this survey will serve to improve our communication efforts. This survey should take no more than five minutes to complete.


If you are a parent/guardian with children at multiple grade levels, please provide general feedback with consideration for your overall experience. There will be a place for comments at the end of the survey.


Follow this link to take the survey today! https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/methacton

The survey will close on Monday, July 10.


Thank you for helping us to improve our ability to connect with our families and the wider community.


Sincerely,


Angela Linch, Coordinator of School and Community Information
