Help out DVC

To everyone in class,

1.      Please take a few minutes to carefully complete the CTE Perkins Survey located at:
By completing this brief survey, you will be entered to win a $25 Amazon gift card.

Please hold the control button and click on the link to be directed to the survey
If the link does not work, please copy into the address bar on your web browser
2.      The purpose of collecting this information is to provide the State of California with data to secure funding that can only be used to support career/technical programs at DVC. In the past, these funds have been used to fund tutoring for students, upgrade computer labs, develop new programs such as Sport Medicine and Alternative Energy, and purchase such state-of-the-art equipment as a digital X-ray unit for the Dental Programs. We need your help to make sure that DVC continues to receive the money we need to keep our programs up-to-date! 

3.      The information you provide will be treated with strict confidentiality! Your Student ID number is required for enrollment verification only; the survey is useless without your student ID number.

4.      Please complete ONE survey EVERY semester that you are enrolled at DVC, if you have completed a survey in another course this semester, there is no need to do so again.

THANK YOU for taking the time to participate in this very important activity.
