Periodically, we assess Sunday School classes to see what we’re doing right and what we need to do better. The following is our assessment tool for Youth Sunday School classes.
Current teachers: Answer and/or make comments on each question. Use the COMMENT BOX on this page to submit your answers or suggestions. (Comments will NOT be posted or made public.)
Teachers in orientation: Read and familiarize yourself with each question. Think about what you will do so you can answer each question in a positive way. (You are welcome to make comments or ask questions in the COMMENT BOX below. Comments will NOT be posted or made public.)
