GU4LA4 Pre-Event Survey
  Survey of Parent/Guardians Attending the Parent Summit

GEAR UP 4 LA is a program at your child’s school offering events and services to help you learn how to support your child’s academic and lifelong success.

The purpose of this survey is to help us understand your thoughts on your child’s education and knowledge of education options and processes. The information you provide will remain confidential; only GEAR UP staff will see your responses, not your child's teachers or school staff. Responses from completed surveys will be combined before they are presented to non-GEAR UP staff.
