HCPS Survey for Parents and Guardians

Dear Stinger Families,


The annual HCPS survey for parents and guardians is now open!  This short 5-10 minute survey serves to inform HCPS about our community’s thoughts and impressions regarding HCPS, as well as individual schools.  Data from this survey will give the division an idea of what it is doing well, and what can be improved.  Responses will be used to help make decisions about school programming, and the allocation of resources, and staff.   While HCPS will get collected data from the survey, individual responses are confidential.  The survey will be available until April 3, 2020.


You may find the survey at https://www.research.net/r/HCPS2020parent .


Parents and guardians who participate can choose to be entered in a prize drawing for items such as:

  • a laptop computer
  • one of 5 $50 gas gift cards (one per magisterial district)
  • or coupons for a free sandwich

In addition, the school in each magisterial district with the highest parent/guardian response rate will win a meal for school staff members.


We look forward to hearing your feedback and thank you in advance for completing this short survey so that we can continue to serve our students and families to the best of our ability!
