Student Voice Survey

February 6th-10th, the students in grades 3-8 will be asked to complete the student voice survey for their teacher.  This anonymous survey will take roughly 10-20 minutes and is intended to provide your child with an opportunity to give input on his/her classroom experience.  The survey results will be used by teachers to reflect upon as well as guide their professional practices. This survey is taken in the student portal in Infinite Campus and students will have their passwords reset to accommodate this. Password instructions will be given to students when it is their time to take the survey. The parent portal will not be affected in any way.   If you have any questions about this survey, please contact me at 859-359-9603 or by email at julie.pouncy@kenton.kyschools.us.   If you wish for your student NOT to participate in this survey, please complete the waiver form that is attached and return to school by Wednesday, January 11th.
