What do you think about your child’s school and HCPS?

As a Henrico County Public School’s parent or guardian, your views are important! Please take a few minutes to tell us about your perspectives and experiences.

What’s this survey all about? Each year, HCPS conducts a survey of families, staff members and students to see what we do well and how we can improve.  Your answers help us measure our progress, decide what new programs are needed and know where to best invest our resources.

The survey should take about 15-20 minutes to complete.  You have until April 2 to complete it and your responses are confidential.  Thank you for your help!
