The survey is available at http://ccsd.net/parentsurvey ]ccsd.net/parentsurvey from April 1 - May 21, 2013. Students and staff also have the opportunity to take the survey, which covers school issues and is separate from the Board's survey related to the superintendent selection process. It's all part of Interim Superintendent Pat Skorkowsky's goal of increasing parent and community involvement in schools. Survey results provide vital feedback to CCSD on ways to improve public education in southern Nevada. Additionally, the surveys are part of ongoing outreach efforts that have helped transform CCSD from the fastest-growing to the fastest-improving school district in the nation.
