HV RBE-RN Needs Assessment

We hope your school year is off to an incredible start!

In order to better serve our region, the NYS Hudson Valley Regional Bilingual Education Resource Network (HV RBE-RN) is gathering data to inform our grant-funded professional development initiatives.

We kindly request that you take a moment to complete this short survey (https://goo.gl/forms/ngJL5F0IKtotERZP2). Our intent is to gauge your professional development needs as they relate to supporting English Language Learners (ELLs) in our region.

In addition, if you received HV RBE-RN support or attended our trainings during the 2016-2017 school year, we ask that you please rate your level of satisfaction with the HV RBE-RN as well as provide feedback on our performance.

Your responses will assist us in providing better services to meet your needs. Please feel free to forward this survey to other educators in your district.

We appreciate your assistance!
