A new survey was made available on Friday, February 1 through the District 15 website to allow parents the chance to rank in order of preference whether they would like an early or late release, and on what day it should happen for the 2013-2014 school year.
The survey (links below) must be completed by Friday, February 8.
A previous survey was provided for parents, though it met with great opposition from parents who requested numerous times that a Friday early release option be provided.
Information now provided on the D15 website does not indicate Friday early release as an option, but once the survey is begun, the option is present, in addition to all days of the week.
Parents will have to rank first, second and third choice, and if they do not, the survey will not be valid. Reasons for the preferences also are requested.
English and Spanish hard copies of the survey also were sent home with the youngest child of each household, according to District 15.
Deputy Superintendent for District 15 Jim Garwood said an automated phone message was made to each D15 household on Friday, February 1 telling parents to expect the survey in their student's backpacks, in both English and Spanish.
Calls were also made in Spanish to Spanish-speaking households, Garwood said.

The survey in English can be found here.

According to Superintendent Scott Thompson, parents of children who will be entering District 15 in the fall also are able to participate in this survey.
In the area where it asks where your child will be attending, put the school that you child will be going to, and in the comments section, indicate your child will be entering the school system in the 2013-2014 school year.
