On August 19, 2019 Bedford County Public Schools emailed surveys regarding elementary facility planning.  We appreciate the responses we received.  Due to the fact that the response rate was less than we had hoped, we are now seeking additional input from parents and guardians specifically about the options we are currently considering that will impact our elementary school facilities for the next 25-30 years. We want all parents and guardians who wish to give input to have the opportunity to do so before we make any decisions.

Using the email address you provided to the school, we have emailed you a link to a shorter second survey that is limited to the major decisions we are considering that are specific to your school zone, and that also provides an opportunity for open-ended comments. This survey will be available no later than 1:00 p.m. on Monday, September 30, 2019, and will close at 1:00 p.m. on Monday, October 14, 2019.  Please contact your school’s principal if you have any problems accessing and/or completing the survey or if you did not receive the survey. Please note: We are asking anyone who completed the first survey to complete this shorter version as well. Thank you in advance for your input, including those who have completed both surveys.
