Walla Walla Public Schools is seeking feedback from key stakeholder groups through the Educational Effectiveness Survey (EES) as an extension of the Board of Director’s strategic planning process. This survey tool will be used annually going forward.
Next week the district will begin administering the survey to parents. Parents will have an opportunity to complete the survey using their own electronic devices. They may also take the survey when they arrive for conferences at their respective schools. Hard copies will also be available. A survey link is being posted on the Walla Walla Public Schools webpage – www.wwps.org.
Later this month students and staff will receive the survey. In addition a community telephone survey is being conducted this fall to garner feedback about the quality of education offered in Walla Walla Public Schools. The district will use the data to track progress towards its goals and initiatives.
“This survey will provide our staff and leadership valuable information and feedback about our school environments from the perspective of current parents, students, staff and community members, including those who don’t have children in our schools,” said Superintendent Wade Smith. “We value your input and welcome your ideas as we strive for a world-class education for all students.”
The survey is completely anonymous and available in both English and Spanish. Survey questions were developed by the Center for Educational Effectiveness, a Washington-based educational research firm, in collaboration with the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction for Washington State. This survey has been used with over 750,000 educational stakeholders in the Western U.S. and provides a powerful tool for district staff to benchmark current school perceptions with high-performing schools across the nation.
