I have seen it all. I’m so glad this was sent to me the evening before a Parent Press Conference on parent opt out and other education matters in Delaware. Could the Delaware DOE be any more intrusive in children’s lives? Now they are asking questions about parent involvement with their children, and very specific questions about curriculum and how often it is implemented in schools. This is a joke, but what should I expect from this Department? Parents, if you needed just one more thing to push you over to the side of opt out, please let this be the case! Do you really think the DOE wants this data to help your child? While the letter to districts states it is voluntary, the language on the actual survey which the teacher would give states it is expected all students take the survey.
Isn’t the actual test supposed to provide all the data the DOE needs? Apparently not….
**UPDATED** with surveys for 3rd-5th, 6th-8th, and 11th graders, as well as the letter to school districts.

Those unitiated in the true motivations for DOE (and district) surveys will have no idea they are being used.
Was there a survey like this after DCAS, or is this new to SBA?
I don’t remember my son ever taking a survey after DCAS.
I cannot imagine a third grader reading and answering these questions. Just cannot.
Do these people know children at all?
