{Parent Communication Survey}

Each week I spend time creating a newsletter, updating my teacher website, and sending out Remind messages for important events.  Knowing parent involvement is one of the most important factors in early literacy success, I want to do what I can to keep parents informed and involved. I think most teachers share a similar to-do list when it comes to keeping parents updated.

All that to say, do you ever wonder if your efforts are in vain?  Does anyone really read my brightly colored newsletter? Do parents watch the Animoto videos I post on my teacher website showing our recent activities? Am I better off leaving it up to the weekly campus newsletter that is sent out by my principal each Friday? Do my low-socioeconomic students and their families have access to all of the web-based tools I use to share?  SO many questions, but so little time.

Using these various tools takes a lot of time away from planning and preparing actual lessons.  With that in mind, I've decided to create a quick parent survey in hopes of gaining feedback that will help me use my time more wisely.  If you are interested, you can check out a link to the PDF on my Facebook Fan Page.

I've included a version with room to write-in your own preferred method of communication such as Twitter or Instagram.

What are your favorite ways to communicate with parents?
