Before you develop a survey, consider carefully what you would like to know. Surveys can be used to:
 Get ideas for programs and services (Family nights, health screenings, etc.)
 Get feedback about quality, changes or proposed changes (classroom celebrations, out of school
   time activity fees, curricula)
 Solicit volunteers (propose projects, allow sign ups, determine popular volunteer opportunities)
 Identify barriers and motivators to change (more students walking or biking to school, healthy

Be sure as you develop and distribute your survey that you can get the broadest response possible.
This may involve translating the survey into other languages, paying attention to reading level, and
making internet available at a school computer lab for families to access the survey. To determine that
you received a response from diverse families, you can include demographic questions in your survey
as well.

Below are some examples of survey questions. Free web-based survey tools are a great resource in
structuring questions and gathering the response data. Two popular web-based survey tools are
Survey Monkey and Zoomerang.
