Students: Let us hear ‘Your Voice’ by May 30

Last year, HISD conducted the largest customer service survey in its history. More than 125,000 people responded to the district’s request for feedback, and their input was used to identify strengths and to guide administrators when creating their school improvement plans.

Now, HISD is looking for its stakeholders’ feedback once again, and students are invited to make their voices heard through May 30.

For complete details, please see this related article, or visit the Your Voice website.
