Teacher and School Surveys
To better inform current and possible practices for Family and Consumer Sciences teachers, the following surveys are being utilized to gather important information. The Teacher Survey will take about 5-10 minutes to complete and we are asking that every FACS teacher in Nebraska complete the survey. The second survey is the School Survey which should be completed once per building. This survey will take about 15-20 minutes and covers information about aspects of your school including instructional time, credits given, and greatest needs.
All surveys should be completed by January 1 so that the data can be reviewed, shared, and planning can begin.
