Capturing Kids’ Hearts

Student Survey

As part of the Capturing Kids’ Hearts process, Emporia High School is gathering feedback from students, parents and staff.  It will use the information to guide next steps in the implementation of the Capturing Kids’ Hearts process.  EHS will be sending an opt-in form to gain parent permission so their child may participate.  Only students returning an opt-in form indicating they may participate will complete the survey.

Students will rate the following questions with “always”, “often”, “sometimes”, “rarely”, or “not at all”.
