Dear School District of Philadelphia Parents and Families,

The annual District-Wide Survey is open now! The District-Wide Survey is one of the best tools we have to gather your feedback and assess your perspective on numerous topics that impact the educational experience for students. Your responses, along with the responses from our student and school staff surveys, help us measure progress toward the Board of Education’s Goals & Guardrails and improve our schools and services by informing annual school plans, helping to secure needed funding, clarifying the community resources that students and families need, and more.

This year, parents and guardians have the option to complete the 10-minute parent/guardian survey by mail or online. Hard copy surveys should arrive at the home address that is on file at your child’s school within the next two weeks. If you choose to fill out the hard copy, simply place the completed survey in the included pre-paid envelope and mail it back to us – no stamp needed! If you prefer to complete the survey online, you can access it here. You will need your student’s ID number, which can be found on their report card and is also the same as their lunch number. To show our appreciation, anyone who completes the survey online will be automatically entered into a weekly raffle for the chance to win a $25 electronic gift card.

The District-Wide Survey window closes on June 10, 2022. No matter how you decide to complete the survey, your responses will remain completely confidential. If you have trouble logging in or have questions about the survey, email the survey team at For more information about the District-Wide Survey, including results from previous years, visit

I encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity to let your voice be heard, and remind you that currently there are other surveys – including the 2022 Budget Survey and the 2022-2023 Proposed Bell Schedule Survey – that are seeking your input and feedback. Thank you for being part of the progress!


William R. Hite Jr., Ed.D.
