I believe in the power of a great survey and have been giving them to my students ever since I started teaching. This year, I am breaking them up for different days and will have students do them in class so I can gather them and mine them for information. One of these is for my entire team to use as well. Please feel free to use and adapt to fit your needs. The three surveys are

As far as parents go, I have a very simple survey. I ask them what their hopes and dreams are for their kids and then if there is anything else I should know.
(In the past, I have used a more extensive parent survey, to see that go here).
