VoiceNM Opportunity To Learn Survey

Your opinion matters to us!  "Voice NM" is a survey application used by the New Mexico Public Education Department to collect input from students, parents, and teachers regarding education in New Mexico.  Please take the time to complete one online survey for each of your children's Kinder-2nd grade teachers. You just need to fill out one survey per teacher per child.  The 3rd-5th grade students have already taken this survey at school, so only K-2nd parents need to participate.  All surveys must be complete by May 11th.  Thanks so much for your support.  Your feedback is greatly appreciated.
