LCAP Survey 2024

Dear Parents/Guardians,
This survey is an invitation and opportunity for you to provide feedback to our school and district. We want you to share your point of view and opinion regarding the educational experiences your students have had in our school and district. This survey is intended for parents and guardians/caregivers of students in the Westwood Unified School District as part of our annual Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).  No personal information will be asked of parents other than their student(s) ethnicity/race (optional) who attend WUSD. 
Our district has LCAP goals that frame what is needed for our students to be successful and College and Career Ready. The questions that will follow are broken down by each goal, including open ended questions. Your input on what is working well and what areas we can improve on continue to be valuable in moving our school and district forward.  (Please respond to us based on your experience.)
Thank you, in advance, for taking the time to give our schools and district your feedback. Your voice matters as we continue to ensure a rigorous and engaging learning environment for your child/ren. (It is possible that you will receive this survey multiple times, if you have a student at different schools. We would appreciate your feedback by school.)
The survey closes on  Friday, April 26th, 2024.
