Norton's Notes - April 26, 2024

  • District Survey Opens Monday, April 29

    • On Monday, April 29, parents/guardians will receive an email from LTISD containing a link to our Spring 2024 LTISD Stakeholder Survey.

    • The purpose of this survey—which directly supports our District Strategic Plan is to identify strengths, areas for improvement, and overall perspectives of stakeholders regarding various aspects of the district.

    • The survey link will be sent only to the primary guardian of each student, and the survey can be completed once for each student in the household attending LTISD.

    • In order to access the survey, you will need to enter the student’s ID number (minus the "S"). You can find your student’s ID number in Skyward Family Access.

    • The parent survey will close Friday, May 3.

    • Additionally, students in grades 3-12 will be afforded an opportunity to take the survey.

    • The student survey will also be administered at each campus between Monday, April 29 through Friday, May 3.

    • Individual schools will determine the exact date and time the survey will be given within this window.

    • Please be assured that all surveys are confidential, and all data collected will be used solely to guide our planning and strategy development. 

    • The data is owned by LTISD and will not be shared with any third party.

    • We sincerely appreciate your dedication to our district and your willingness to contribute to our growth and improvement.
