CMS is in the midst of the AdvancED accreditation process. A key component to that process is stakeholder surveys, which will be administered to parents, students, & staff. The survey results will enable our school and central office leaders to hear from key stakeholders to inform improvement strategies, raise student achievement and strengthen our overall effectiveness. Taking the survey will also help stakeholders understand the AdvancED Standards for Quality Schools and provide a means for learning about what a parent, staff member or student may be looking for in a high-quality school. Please follow the link below to complete the survey.
Thank you in advance for participating.
