District Announcements
Parent Climate Survey to Poll for Improvements and District Success

Parents of students in the Aledo Independent School District should have received an e-mail invitation May 1 that encouraged them to respond to a confidential and anonymous climate survey of the District. Accumulated responses will be used for goal-setting at individual campuses and at the District level for the 2016-’17 school year and beyond. The electronic surveys must be returned no later than midnight on May 22.
“This climate survey gives our parents a chance to be heard,” said AISD Deputy
Superintendent Lynn McKinney. “We hope many of our parents will respond so that we can continue to improve our services to students.” READ MORE.
