Parent Media Survey!

Published by under Parenting Issues and tagged:

In today’s digital world, it is a challenge to manage media with children and teenagers. Computers, television, radio, movies, cell phones, video games, the Internet, magazines and books all influence our children’s lives in various ways.

At St. George’s School, we have created a parent survey to get a better understanding of media use and issues within the school’s community. Your answers will help inform us so we can explore pertinent topics at school with our students and ultimately help you better guide your children. The survey is anonymous and takes approximately 10 minutes to fill out.

Please note that this particular survey is intended for parents of grade 6 to 11 students (middle and high school).

Follow this link to the survey.
