Hello Bobcat Parents,
PfISD is partnering with Bright Bytes, an educational software company, in order to learn more about our students’ school and home technology
use for learning. For that reason, we are reaching out to ask you to take part in the Clarity questionnaire. Your participation is essential in helping us form a more complete picture of technology use for learning in your students’ lives.
If you have students at multiple campuses, please complete one survey for each campus using the link provided by the campus. This process ensures each campus has the appropriate information for their student population. Multiple responses are not necessary for siblings on the same campus.
The survey will take approximately 5 minutes. Please know that all of your responses will remain anonymous to protect your privacy. PfISD values parent feedback and we appreciate your input.
Please use the link below to begin the survey.

The pace in the classroom is also very quick this semester, so please encourage your students to stay on top of their assignments and responsibilities so they don’t fall behind. As well as begin school on time 7:40 am tardy bell and here daily
