Parents of Hawai’i public school children have an extra week to fill out a survey designed to help the Department of Education set priorities for improved services and programs.  Results will also be used to measure strategic plan goals for the DOE.

The deadline for submitting the School Quality Survey has been extended until March 8, 2013.

The questionnaires are for parents of children enrolled in grades 4, 5, 7, 8, 9 and 11.

DOE officials say survey results provide schools data on everything ranging from parent satisfaction with course offerings, support services and availability to discuss their child’s progress to whether students feel safe and are meeting their goals.


In addition to the parent survey, teachers and students from the selected grades will fill out separate surveys at school.


Survey responses are confidential and survey results will be available to schools by the end of the academic year, and will also be posted online at

Parents with question on Maui can call 1-855-276-5801 toll-free from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
