Partnership 4 Kids

Partnership 4 Kids is honored to have been part of your family this year.  We truly wish we could have finished off the year as intended, but with that being said, we are already looking towards next year which means we need your feedback.  Please complete this survey (estimated to take 4 or less minutes to complete) so that we can modify or enhance our programs to best serve you and your students.  You my take more than one survey if you have more than one student.
