McGarrah Elementary Focus Group Questionaire

Focus Group Meeting Questionnaire


***A focus group provides the opportunity for several people to get together in a confidential setting and it allows for structured evaluation that is intended to yield useful data.

McGarrah Elementary will utilize the data as one of our sources of evaluating our Title I Parent Policy and Program.***
