In response to these reports, PTAC is conducting a survey on lunch and transportation experiences, as well as ideas or thoughts for improvement. Information from this survey will be used to inform the Alexandria Parent Teacher Association Council (PTAC) and its efforts to advocate for safe and equitable school lunch and bus experiences for all students. The information collected via this survey will enhance PTAC's understanding of these topic across all ACPS schools. The survey has three short pages (one on lunches, one on buses, and one on open comments). We are seeking input from both caregivers and teachers/staff through ACPS by September 9th. Please distribute broadly through your channels.
