If your agency uses Skyward as your financial package we would appreciate it if you would have your Business Manager/CFO or appropriate person complete a short (10 question)  survey located at:   https://goo.gl/forms/HCMmXh1MtKDJxyez2


We are interested in identifying service agencies who use Skyward for the purpose of collaboration.  Completing the survey does NOT commit your agency to future conversations.  In fact, the respondent can select NO when asked if they would be interested in occasional, future, virtual, collaborative meetings with other service agencies.

Our interest in exploring collaborative conversations is twofold... First of all, we believe we can be an unbelievable resource for each other.  Secondly, we are interested in finding a way for Service Agencies to have a stronger voice in the RFE (Request for Enhancements) process.
Persons who respond will have access to the results of the survey.

Thanks in advance!

Executive Director
