BASE Survey Results


The Douglas County School District Before and After School Programs survey all parents every other year. Survey results drive our continuous improvement at individual sites as well as system-wide.  Parents rank best practice statements based on national after school standards.  Individual sites also formally and informally survey parents as needed to drive improvement and gather perceptual data.   During the 2012-13 School year we had 1,611 responses.

Below is a brief recap of our 2012-13 responses.

The resolution takes effect immediately.
