La Crescent-Hokah Public Schools Community Survey 2023 Strengths, Opportunities and Desired Outcomes for La Crescent-Hokah Public Schools A planning team is drafting a new districtwide operational plan to guide La Crescent-Hokah Public Schools' work for the coming years. The process began this month with student, staff and family focus groups to understand what they want their experience to be as they engage with the schools. We would also like to hear from you as a community member of the school district. Please note: if you have a child currently in the district, there is a family-specific survey with questions about your experience as a parent/caregiver. We'd appreciate your response to that survey rather than this survey, which has been sent to your email - thank you! The survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. Please utilize the link below to access the survey. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LCH-community
