Millard families,

Your opinion matters. Millard Public Schools seeks to have engaged stakeholders to meet its mission. Strategy 1.2 (2018) calls for a survey to determine engagement of all stakeholders (students, families, staff, and community). Please take 10 minutes to provide us your candid input. Your answers will be anonymous. If you have students in multiple buildings, you will receive this survey link for each building and can provide specific input. The survey window will remain open through today, September 27th.
