To all VHCS parents/guardians:
All Vestavia Hills City Schools are engaged in an ongoing continuous improvement process. In an effort to improve our system practices, we are seeking input from all of our stakeholders through online school surveys. We value your opinion and ask you take time to complete a survey for each school where you have children enrolled.
Parent survey links are located on each school's website under the "Parent Survey" tab; surveys will be available April 11-29, 2016. Surveys are a means to engage all of our stakeholders in two-way communication. They provide school leaders and teachers a lens into the thinking and perceptions of our stakeholders. Careful analysis of the results enriches understanding of areas of strength and effectiveness as well as those areas that possibly need improvement.
The survey results will enable our school leaders to measure stakeholders’ perspectives and help target improvement strategies focused on student achievement as well as school and district effectiveness. Taking the survey will also help stakeholders understand the AdvancED Standards for Quality Schools and provide a means for learning what should be expected in a high quality school system. Please be assured your response to all surveys is anonymous and your honest opinion is greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your time and your support in completing the surveys.
It's time to enroll your new student to begin a wonderful journey in Vestavia Hills City Schools. Each school is hosting an orientation soon where families can come into the school, bring their new student, and meet some of the staff who will be leading your child next year. Orientation is optional. However, we encourage you to begin the enrollment process as soon as possible.
Signing your child up for school is a two-step process: 1) Enrollment in Vestavia Hills City Schools, and 2) Registration for an individual school. Enrollment information can be found on each school's website and forms may be turned in to any school. Please take time to do this as soon as possible. Once your child is enrolled in the school system, then you will receive information by mail this summer about how and when to Register for your child's school in July.
