High School Parents/Students – Please submit your advisory preference form for next year by July 6, 2020. 

You can complete the preference form through Survey Monkey, at the following link (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CRTFG5J),  or by filling out and returning the form attached. 

We will contact families we do not hear from by Friday, July 6, 2020 to be sure every student is able to share their preferences. 

Hello MNCS Students & Parents! We need your input on the surveys linked below:

Please complete the surveys by Monday, July 6th

MNCS urgently needs your help in creating the best possible fall plans to meet the needs of our students and families. This summer, all MN schools are required to plan for 3 different scenarios for next year. 

MNCS staff have already started figuring out how each scenario could work for students. We are at the point where we need your input on how Distance Learning went in the spring and what you are thinking about school re-opening in the fall.

We created a parent/family survey and a student survey that we would very much like for you to complete asap. We know it is short notice, but we hope you will take a few minutes to share your thoughts with us. Each survey has about 20 questions with a mix of multiple choice and short answer. No questions are required, complete the ones you want. Of course, we would welcome your input on all of them!
