Finally, in an effort to always offer CDEs that meet the needs of our members, our staff is committed to seeking feedback from our stakeholders who experience these CDEs. We value your impact, and we ask that you and your students take a few minutes to use the links below to share your thoughts. Please keep in mind that these surveys are designed to help make our events better, not necessarily air grievances. If you have a grievance, please contact me or the appropriate CDE superintendent. Otherwise, we ask that all students and teachers who participate in the state Meats Evaluation CDE take a moment to share any feedback (positive or constructive) that will help make our events better. Please feel free to share this student survey link with your students.
