Brooks’ Call for Ideas Evaluation

The Brooks PTO launched a survey in September to gather ideas from the community that will enrich students’ experiences, shape the future of fundraising and spend down the PTO current fund balance. The goal of the PTO is to spend $20,000! The results of the survey was shared at the 11/6/17 PTO meeting. You may find the meeting minutes here. Please complete the Brooks’ Call for Ideas Evaluation survey and provide your opinion regarding the 14 initiatives. We will focus our attention on your feedback and as well as the feedback of Brooks’ faculty and staff. Thanks you for your participation!
