CRAIGHEAD COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -

Westside Consolidated School District is conducting a parent survey regarding AMI days.

Pam Dooley, curriculum director, said the goal is to make AMI days productive.

“We knew at the very beginning of our planning time with AMI days that we were going to conduct a survey at the end,” Dooley said.

So far, she said parent-feedback has been beneficial.

“We’ve also given the students and teachers access to the survey as well,” Dooley said. “We want these days to be productive and better than the day before.”

The district has already begun using the surveys to make changes to its AMI days by tweaking assignments and including more parental involvement.

“We want to do what's best for our kids all the time and so with that being said we also want to do what's best for our families and their child's education, so it's important to us to know how we can make this better,” Dooley said.

Parents who would like to take the survey can find it here.
