pfs For those who are not contacted at random by phone from  Patron Insight, an online version of the survey is available  below in English and Spanish to gather even more input from a  wider audience. 

• Click HERE for Spanish
• Click HERE for English

Please note that each of these surveys will only accept one response per device, i.e. laptop, cell phone, etc. If a person leaves the survey before he or she is finished, he or she will not be able to return later. That's a safety device to keep people from being able to do it more than once on the same device. No e-mail addresses are collected in this process; it is totally confidential. All the answers come straight to Patron Insight, and the district will get a summary report. Click HERE for more information and updates on the Process for Success Facilities Master Plan.
