Clarke Families,

We were chosen as one of twenty families to participate in a statewide program to study and improve School/Family Partnerships. Currently 31 families have completed the survey! Thank you! Please log on and give us feedback so we can determine what areas need attention. 

The link is below in bold print. Additional details are below as well. There is also a Spanish version below. 

Thank you, 

Mrs. Kiger

Dear Teachers and Family Members at the Clarke Elementary:


My name is Kathleen Kyzar and I am a research consultant working with family engagement leaders at the Iowa Department of Education and the ASK Resource Center. I am also an education professor at Texas Christian University (TCU). 


Two weeks ago, I sent an e-mail about a survey I am conducting on family and teacher collaboration. The results will help inform family-school partnership practices in Iowa. 


This e-mail is simply a reminder to complete the survey at your earliest convenience, if you have not done so already. It should take about 20 minutes. To be eligible, you need to be a current teacher or parent/family member of a student at the Early Learning Center. Participation is completely voluntary and your answers will be anonymous. 


To access the survey, click on the link to access the survey and additional information:


The survey will be open until Wednesday, March 13th. 


Risks include loss of confidentiality and some questions on the survey ask you to share personal information. To minimize these risks, the information you provide is anonymous and collected using a secure server. A school code will be linked with your data, but the identifying information for that code will be kept separate from the data. Finally, you can skip any questions you don’t want to answer or stop the survey entirely.


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at 817-257-6079 or


Thank you for your time,


Kathleen Kyzar, Ph.D.
