Attention Parents of 6th, 8th and 11th Grade Students

 

Second Notice: Norwalk Students in Grades 6, 8 and 11 will participate in the Iowa Youth Survey During the week of October 20, 2014

 

For many years Norwalk students in grades 6, 8 and 11 have been participating in the Iowa Youth Survey. The purpose of the Iowa Youth Survey is to collect information about Iowa youth so we can better understand what makes them feel secure strong and safe in their communities and schools. Information collected will help state planning agencies, the Norwalk Schools and the Norwalk community put together valuable programming for our students.  It is important to learn what is working and what needs improvement from their perspective. Students will complete this anonymous survey electronically during one class period.

Please contact Jan Jensen, Norwalk Assessment Coordinator, at 515 981-1850 or jjensen@norwalk.k12.ia.us or your child’s building principal with questions or concerns.

Dr. Wulf is well grounded in the use of research to drive improvements to teaching and learning, and the district is a first-year recipient of the Teacher Leadership and Compensation grant beginning this school year.”
