District Survey Results
Thank you to all who completed the survey. We had over 1,215 parent/guardian responses and 915 student responses from grades 3-12. District Wide Survey results are attached to this email. Individual school parent and student survey results will be shared by your child’s principal later this week. Our priority and focus for the year will be to remain focused and committed to maintaining a physically and psychologically safe learning environment that promotes strong relationships with students, families, and staff. While the overall results are very positive, please know that the feedback from the surveys are currently being used by our schools to reflect on our current practices and drive improvement.
