Parents and guardians of Toledo Public Schools are being asked to fill out a Parent Survey so the district can collect parent perceptions related to a number of key topics.

Those topics include engagement, possible barriers to engagement and the overall culture of their children's school. It is critical to gather this feedback in order to provide a learning environment that respects a culturally-diverse community.

The survey results will determine what resources parents might need to better support their students' academic success and what obstacles that may impact their participation. The information will be used as a key driver as the district works to align programs and resources.

In addition to the link on the district’s website, parents and guardians can fill out the Parent Survey by texting @pxtps to 35134 - the survey can be taken on any texting device. The survey can also be taken using a QR code. Finally, there will be some paper versions available but it is hopeful as many people as possible will use one of the electronic versions to reduce the need to manually enter the data.

The Start High School Spartans, which recently won their second straight City League title, took on the Woodward High School Polar Bears on Thursday, Nov. 3, in the revival of the Old Newsboys Shoe Bowl.

The game, which was covered by BCSN, was played at Start. The Spartans won the game with a score of 21-0, becoming the winningest TPS team in the Shoe Bowl since the first game was played in 1966.
