Survey results
The February newsletter was sent through the TCGIS office to the Elternbrief mailing list. Of the 775 people on the mailing list 360 opened the email. And 25% of the those who opened the email completed a survey question.

First question was about PTO involvement . This year 36 people stated they are currently involved in a PTO event (38% of respondents). And a third of respondents stated they are involved with TCGIS in other ways instead of the PTO.

Second question was about PTO meeting attendance . Three quarters of the respondents indicated that they had attended 0-1 PTO meeting this school year.

The third question asked about ways to increase attendance at PTO meetings . Half of respondents indicated that no change would improve their PTO meeting attendance. But a quarter of respondents indicated that a Sunday evening meeting may be preferred.

Thanks for taking the time to complete the survey and giving us some insight.
