Partners in Learning Parent Survey

The Tell Them From Me Parent Survey is a comprehensive survey that is based on Joyce Epstein’s framework for fostering positive relations between the school and the community and captures parents’ perceptions of children’s experiences at home and school. Successful schools foster greater communication with parents, encourage parental involvement in their child’s schoolwork, and enlist parents to volunteer at the school and participate in school governance. The Tell Them From Me Parent Survey measures these topics as well as the extent to which parents feel the school supports learning and positive behavior and whether the school promotes a safe and inclusive environment. This document provides detailed descriptions of all 10 measures, as well as the method of calculating and reporting for each.
