Community Phone Survey
Periodically, Mahtomedi Public Schools conducts surveys of stakeholders to help gauge satisfaction, interests, or ideas for improvement. Starting in mid-May of 2021, residents of Independent School District 832 may be contacted by the Morris Leatherman Company for a phone survey.
