5 Essential Survey

Please see information about this year’s 5 Essential Survey here. Parents, guardians, staff, and our Brooks students are invited and encouraged to share thoughts about D97 and Brooks. To date, Brooks has had a 6% response rate. Schools need a minimum of 20% parent response rate in order to receive a report so please complete this survey. The process takes 5 minutes and the information received will be helpful when planning to improve our school and the experience for our students and staff. Thank you!
