Parent and Caregiver Survey (PaCS)
USING PARENTS’ AND CAREGIVERS’ VOICES TO INFORM ONGOING IMPROVEMENT
Effective parent and caregiver involvement can play a critical role in students’ academic success, supporting learning and leading to improved achievement. Parents and caregivers are also important stakeholders whose views and experiences of the school should inform schools’ self-review and ongoing improvement efforts.
Our Parent and Caregiver Survey (PaCS) has seven scales that provide feedback to principals and school leadership teams about a wide range of dimensions important to parents and how school communities can foster greater involvement of parents, as key stakeholders, into the life of the school. A brief description of the scales of the PaCS is provided below.
