Feedback Needed!
Indianola Family Survey

Helping students do their best in school requires a
team effort. Families, students, and schools all play important roles in this process. To help all of us learn how to make your child's schooling experience as positive and beneficial as possible, please give us your honest, thoughtful responses as you 
complete this survey 
Because different children often have different experiences in the same school, if you have more than one child in school, we would like you to focus on the experience of just one child in a particular school. Please take this survey about your oldest child who attends Indianola.
This feedback is valuable in planning future events and activities for our families as well as reflecting on our procedures as a school community. 
We appreciate your help!
