Parents who are relocating to Maryland may be interested in a recent survey surrounding Harford County Public Schools. According to The Baltimore Sun, information presented to the school board this past Monday showed that students and parents alike were satisfied with the school's performance.
More than 90 percent of the students responded to the survey along with 4,644 parents who completed the questionnaire. The survey showed that more than 91 percent of parents were satisfied with the school's communication efforts.
However, the report did highlight some issues within the schools. The majority of parents (95 percent) responded to the survey explaining that they believed the schools were being kept clean, while only 60 percent of the students between grades six and 11 agreed. The elementary school students agreed more with their parents, as 84.6 percent reported their facilities were clean.
The purpose of the survey was not to help each individual school just yet, but to develop an understanding of parents' and students' perception of their schools, the media outlet reports.
