5Essentials Survey | Posted 1/22/22

Hello NCHS Parents: Newark High School is asking that parents please take an online 5Essentials Survey. The feedback from this survey provides our school with important information that can assist with our School Improvement Plan. The parent survey is to be completed by parents, guardians, or other caregivers with a child in grades prekindergarten through 12. The parent survey is available in English and Spanish and takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. If parents have more than one (1) child that attends the same school, they may elect to participate multiple times. For parents with children enrolled in multiple schools, we recommend that they participate in the survey for each school. We need at least 20% of our parents to complete this survey or we will not get back our results. This is a great opportunity for you to have input on the direction of Newark High School. Please take a moment to complete the survey today!
