Needs Assessment Survey


Elk Ridge Middle Needs Assessment Survey

             Every three years the schools in the Jordan School District create a needs assessment survey for students, teachers, and parents. Our survey is designed to help us understand the needs of the school community so we can create a school improvement plan and student programs directed at the needs expressed within the survey. Students at Elk Ridge Middle will only participate in the survey if they have returned a signed parent permission slip. The links to the survey are below.
