Dear Parents of children participating in the New Canaan Library’s Summer Reading Program-
my name is Casey Bennett. I am currently a graduate student at
Southern Connecticut State University. Summertime can often mean young
students losing ground in their academic achievement. However, research
shows participation in summer reading programs can curb this summer
learning loss. I am asking for your help in evaluating the New Canaan Library summer reading program and its impact on your children.
An anonymous survey has been created for you and your child and is
expected to take 20 minutes. The parent survey is first (32 questions),
followed directly by the child survey (25 questions). Please be
present and supervise the completion of the survey by your child. All
participation is voluntary, and you can chose to withdraw your
participation at any time. There is no compensation for responding nor
is there any risk. After the survey is complete your participation
Survey Start Date- Friday July 20, 2012
Survey End Date- Friday August 17, 2012
Thank you for taking the time to participate.
For any questions about participant rights, please call Southern
