Leader in Me Parent Survey

Dear CPE Parents/Guardians,

In order to help us to continue with the implementation of The Leader in Me and to be able to track our progress with the program we are asking our parents to please take some time to complete the Leader in Me parent survey.  This survey will help us learn more about key areas of strength and areas where we may need to adjust.  We would like to thank you in advance for your participation.
