    Once again it is time to find out how our students, parents and staff view Ranson Elementary School!
    A letter will be sent home the week of 3/16/15 to parents with instructions and a password to complete the survey so we can use parent input to make our school an even better school.  Please click on Climate Survey Sample to view the questions in advance.  The survey should be completed before May 15, 2015.
    Our 3rd - 5th grade students will take the survey in school during the last week in March. Consent forms were sent out in October 2014 and are on file.  Please click  Climate Survey for Students to view the questions for students in advance.
    A "Quick Link" to the survey can be found on the left sidebar of the Ranson Elementary School homepage.  You will need the password that was sent home to complete the survey.  Parents can also complete the survey in the school computer lab, Monday - Friday from 8:00-8:30- or 3:15 until 3:30.   
    A hard copy of the questions will be available in the school office for review starting 3/16/15.
