February Update: Parent and Youth Surveys

Survey season is here.
If you are a parent with children in the Oregon City School District, you may be receiving a Parent Survey in your email box this month.  We hope you’ll take the time to complete it and be automatically entered to win a $50 Chevron gas card.  Your perspective is crucial in helping Oregon City Together develop an accurate picture of our social norms, concerns, and strengths effecting Oregon City’s youth.
Parents may also be asked this month for permission for your student to participate in this year’s Student Wellness Survey.  By participating in this survey, we are engaging with a statewide effort to gather useable information on current needs trends in our community.
