School Board members conducted a Study Meeting Tuesday, Sept. 5 to discuss surveys they are develping to get input from students, parents, staff and the community. The district will collaborate with The Center for Educational Effectiveness (CEE) for staff, parent and student surveys, while utilizing a third-party research firm for the community survey.
The Center for Educational Effectiveness (CEE) survey tool allows the district to conduct deep analysis of perceptions and the effectiveness of current practices. CEE surveys are standardized to allow for comparability between schools and districts across the nation. Founded in 1999, CEE partners with over 950 schools in 280 districts in the western U.S. and beyond with a common goal of improving student learning and organizational effectiveness.
Tuesday night, the school board and Superintendent Wade Smith discussed themes and questions for inclusion in the community survey. Organizational performance, fiscal management, transparency and safety and security were among the themes discussed. School board members and Superintendent Smith will continue question development in the coming weeks for the community telephone survey.
