Albemarle County Public Schools Seeks Community Views on Facilities, Programs, Services for 2020-21 School Year Budget
(ALBEMARLE COUNTY, VA) – Albemarle County residents are being asked to offer their opinions on the state of school division facilities, programs and services in an online community satisfaction survey.
The survey, at
https://survey.k12insight.com/r/9inLdk, seeks the views of students, parents, employees, and other members of the community and will be open through December 20. The division says data from the survey will be used to help plan future operational improvements.
Among the areas of interest highlighted in the survey are participation in two community engagement programs, Community Connect and the Gold Card. Community Connect, at
https://volunteer.k12albemarle.org, allows members of the community to review details on volunteer opportunities in the division’s 25 schools and match their interests with specific school needs.
The Gold Card provides senior citizens 60 years of age and older with free access to all school-based events during the year, including athletic contests, concerts, drama performances, and spring musicals. Information on the program and how to apply for a Gold Card is available at
The community survey results, together with input from the school division’s advisory committees, which includes parents and teachers, will help inform Superintendent Dr. Matthew Haas’s funding request for the next school year. The superintendent will deliver his 2020-21 school year proposal to the School Board at its meeting on January 23, 2020.
This news release has been updated to reflect a change in the survey end date. The Community Satisfaction Survey will remain open through 11:59 p.m. on Friday, December 20, 2019.
