District seeks parent input through Educational Effectiveness Survey
Walla Walla Public Schools is seeking feedback from key stakeholder groups through the Educational Effectiveness Survey (EES) as an extension of the District’s Strategic Plan and commitment to continuous improvement. This anonymous survey tool is used annually to help the district better serve parents and students.
This week the district will begin administering the survey to parents. Parents will have an opportunity to complete the survey using their own electronic devices. Paper copies will also be available by request from their child’s school. The survey, available in multiple languages, takes about 10 minutes to complete and is accessible online by visiting the following website. Parents are asked to complete a separate survey for each child's school. The survey closes March 31.
Students and staff are also taking the Educational Effectiveness survey. The district will use the data to track progress towards its goals and initiatives.
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.
