Poor Excellent

Part 4 - General Comments

1. Would you/Do you recommend EPCP to your friends? Y/N

Why or why not?

2. If you were returning next year, what volunteer roles would you be interested in?
(e.g., Publicity, fundraising, special events, parent education, class representative

3. What other comments would you like to make?

(e.g., organization of responsibilities, remarks concerning general meetings, classroom
experiences, class days/times satisfactory, specific topics you’d like taught, etc.)

4. As part of a strategic planning process begun this year, the EPCP board is planning to
restructure the current board and committee structure for the 2009-2010 school year and
beyond. This restructuring will allow for more input of skills and ideas from the
membership-at-large rather than centered only within the board itself and reduce the
theater commitment by spreading the roles within committees and likely reduce the day-of-
show role (maybe like it was this year). What ideas do you have for how parent
committees (examples: fundraising, classrooms, safety, maintenance, publicity,
membership, and so forth) might be organized to best meet the needs of the preschool
throughout the school year?

Thank you for taking the time to complete this evaluation!
