As part of their improvement efforts, officials with the and all of its schools will be sending starting Monday an invitation for individuals to participate in an online survey that centers on the district and its educational mission.
The invites will go out Sept. 10-21. According to a news release, the surveys are a means to engage all of the district’s stakeholders—parents, students and staff—in two-way communication. The surveys are aimed at providing school leaders and teachers a lens into the thinking and perceptions of stakeholders. The results will be analyzed to determine schools’ areas of strength and effectiveness, as well as those areas that may need improvement.
Survey results will allow school leaders to measure stakeholders' attitudes and help target improvement strategies focused on student achievement and school and district effectiveness. Taking the survey will also help stakeholders understand the AdvancED Standards for Quality Schools and provide a means for learning about what a parent, student or staff member should be looking for in a high-quality school system.
The online survey will be available through a link on the district's and schools’ websites and through e-mails. Paper copies also will be made available in each school’s front office.
