9,000 Survey Responses Inform Planning for the Future
31 May 2013
During the month of March over 9,000 students, staff, parents, and alumni provided feedback about our schools, staff, leadership, and the District through the annual survey process. Data collected is used to:
- Inform the strategic planning process, specifically to identify priorities and gaps
- Measure progress towards school climate and culture goals. In 2012-13, each school has a climate goal with specific questions used to monitor and report progress.
- Celebrate success – historically our stakeholders take great pride in our district and that is reflected throughout the survey results. Collecting feedback annually validates the direction of the district, as well as guides improvement efforts.
In general, our students, staff, parents and alumni are satisfied with the Elmbrook Schools! Staff find great meaning in their work, parents find staff to be responsive to their child's needs and feel welcome and informed, and students appreciate the positive learning environment that greets them each day.
The greatest opportunity for improvement remains our district mission: educating and inspiring every student to think, to learn and succeed. Meeting the needs of all learners, empowering students to take ownership of their learning, inspiring and supporting innovation, and expanding our students' awareness of the cultural diversity around them were common themes across our stakeholder groups.
Thank you to all who responded to this year's survey. For complete student and parent results, and a summary of staff and alumni feedback, please visit http://www.elmbrookschools.org/surveyresults.
