TCPS wants to hear from you! Our annual Parent Survey is designed to align with the TCPS 2020 Vision Strategic Plan. 

We use the results to:

  • Identify priorities and gaps.
  • Measure progress toward strategic plan outcomes and goals.
  • Guide performance feedback. Results are reviewed with each school’s Principal.
  • Celebrate success. Collecting feedback annually validates the direction of TCPS, as well as guides improvement efforts.

Results will be presented to the Board of Education and will be available on the TCPS website.

The Annual TCPS Community Partner Breakfast!

TCPS will celebrate and recognize Community Partners on May 29th.  The many resources made available through businesses, organizations, and individuals who share our vision for our children’s futures have a tremendous impact on the education of TCPS students. TCPS is so very grateful for this commitment and generosity. Together we are making an impact.
