Clark County Parent Survey

November 8, 2016

270 Strategies partnered with Opportunity 180 and the Department of Education to survey Clark County parents with school-age children to better understand thoughts and opinion about our local school district. They targeted parents who have at least one child currently attending a Clark County School District (CCSD) public school. The survey questions were tailored to collect information about how familiar parents were with the CCSD, as well as their general thoughts towards their child’s school and specifically where improvements are needed.
