  • DAC Community Survey 2017
    The Aspen School District Accountability Committee would like your feedback about how the district and schools are doing. Please CLICK HERE for the 2017 Community Survey. This survey must be completed in one session, and it provides an opportunity for you to comment on each of our schools if you so choose. The survey may be completed in as little as 3-5 minutes, or may take longer if you choose to provide comments. This survey will be open through the end of April.

    Previous Community Surveys have been instrumental in providing wonderful feedback for the district. You can read the outcomes and recommendations from previous surveys HERE.

    Thanks in advance for sharing your thoughts. We appreciate your involvement in the process.
