Take our School Quality Survey

Midland ISD is committed to partnering with you to provide all our students with the best possible education. That's why we're asking parents and guardians, staff members, and students in grades 3-12 to take our School Quality Survey.

The survey asks about student support, academic support, family involvement, safety and behavior, and school leadership. The results will help us better understand our community's needs, determine our strengths, and identify opportunities for improvement.

Please check your email for an invitation and survey link. Parents and guardians can also access the survey HERE or pick up a paper survey at Midland ISD Central Office, located at 615 W. Missouri Ave., or in any campus office. The survey is offered in English, Spanish, and Hakha Chin. Students in grades 3-12 will take the survey at school.

Independent research and communications firm K12 Insight will administer the survey and compile the results, ensuring the confidentiality of participants and their responses.

To learn more about the survey, please contact Dr. Elise Kail at elise.kail@midlandisd.net.
