School Quality Survey (SQS) for Parents

January 30, 2017

Dear Parents of AMS Students in Grade 7 and 8,

The School Quality Survey (SQS) is a DOE-administered survey that asks students, parents, teachers, administrative and office staff, and instructional support staff for their opinions of school quality. Schools may find the survey results useful for school planning, improvement, and other purposes.

Your feedback about our public schools is important to us. As a parent, this is your chance to be heard.  We respectfully request a few moments of your time to complete the School Quality Survey (SQS), which will remain anonymous in order to gather honest responses.

Parents have 2 options to complete the SQS Parent survey.

Option 1: Online.  
Click the link below to take the survey.

Option 2: Paper Form.
Paper surveys were distribute to your child during Homeroom.  Please ask your child if he/she has the paper survey.
  • Use a pencil or pen and mark only one box for the multiple-choice questions.  If you mark two or more answer boxes, please circle your final answer.  If you do not know the answer, please leave it blank;
  • Answer the statements based on your experience this year at your child's school.
    Parents/guardians may respond to one survey per child who is in grade 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 or 11; and
  • Mail the completed forms in the enclosed pre-paid envelope no later than March 17, 2017.  Due  to processing deadlines, any forms received after this date cannot be guaranteed to be included in the DOE's final report.

If you have questions about this survey, please contact us via e-mail at , or by calling (808) 733-4088 from 7:45 am to 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday.  Neighbor island parents may call toll-free at (855) 276 - 5801.

Thank you for your support and for helping to improve our public schools.
