Principal’s Weekly Update- April 27, 2018
HHS Still Needs More Parent Input : NEASC Survey
I am asking for more parents to complete the Endicott Survey for our NEASC self study. If you haven’t had a chance to complete the survey please take a moment to complete. NEASC will visit HHS in November of 2019. The responses from the parent, student and staff surveys will help guide us as we complete the self-study process. HHS currently has approximately 1850 students. So far we have received 19%. We are trying t0 get 25%. See attached link below.
Please go to the website www.endicottresearchcenter.net. On that page you will see “here to take a survey” Enter the following survey code: P2W20095and click GO. Follow the instructions. Every statement on the survey must be responded to in order for your answers to be recorded. Skipped statements will be presented again until they are responded to. When you reach the last screen, click SUBMIT.
Thank you for your help with this important work.
