Mequon-Thiensville School District

Family Survey Results

The Mequon-Thiensville School District has released results from its most recent September 2023 Family Survey. This survey was designed to gain feedback from parents and guardians through the first month of the 2023-2024 school year. Topics of focus included: Family experiences around summer communications and the registration/enrollment process, food service, 4K Wrap Care, new family-specific questions, elementary/middle/high school transitions, transportation concerns, family net promoter score, and support/additional resources needed to achieve success this school year. The anonymous responses will inform our continued planning as the 2023-2024 school year proceeds. We are grateful to all families who took the time to respond to the survey and share feedback.
