District Wide Panorama Survey

Our district values your feedback! We are currently surveying Heritage Elementary School families in order to gain insight into your perception of our school and district effectiveness. To ensure we continue to provide high quality, rigorous learning experiences that meet the needs of our learners and prepare them for college and career, we need your feedback. We want to know what you think.


We have partnered with Panorama Education to conduct our 2023 Family Survey. Panorama safeguards your privacy, keeping your responses confidential. The survey shouldn’t take more than a few minutes to complete, and will be a valuable source of information for us as we work to make our schools and district as good as they can be.


You may complete the survey online between April 10th and May 12th using a

computer, tablet, or smartphone by visiting the website 

and choosing Heritage Elementary School from the drop down menu.


This survey provides families the opportunity to provide valuable information for your school and a high-quality data source for future planning and School Improvement. 


The survey has been translated into various languages; Spanish, Arabic, French, Korean, Vietnamese, and Chinese in an effort to provide accessibility to all families in Wake County Public Schools. The survey administration language can be chosen by families before taking the survey.


We highly encourage all families to participate in this survey so that we can best support the students and families here at HES! 


We thank you in advance for your thoughtful responses. If you have any questions about the survey administration, please don’t hesitate to contact our survey liaison- Courtney Scardecchio (
