Strategic Plan: Curriculum, Assessment, and Instruction Survey
For the past five years, the District 124 Board of Education has administered an annual, comprehensive Climate Survey to parents, students, and teachers. This survey was usually made available over the last few weeks of the school year each spring. With the development of our long-range strategic plan last April, administration has requested that the single comprehensive Climate Survey be broken out into five smaller surveys, to be administered over the course of the school year, which would correspond to each of our strategic goals in the areas of Finance, Curriculum, Culture, Technology, and Facilities. The Board agreed – so this week, parents will see our first “mini-survey” related to Curriculum, Assessment, and Instruction. If you have previously completed the District Climate Survey, you will notice that many items are similar. Asking you to complete these smaller surveys now, however, will allow teachers, administrators, and the Board of Education to use your feedback in a much timelier fashion to make improvements to teaching and learning in our District. You may access the survey directly by clicking here or here for the Spanish version; every four-five weeks, an additional survey will be posted to our website. If you have more than one child enrolled in District 124, you will have the opportunity to complete a separate survey for each child if you desire to do so. Survey results will be shared with parents and the community through updates at monthly Board of Education meetings as well as through postings on the District 124 website and Facebook pages. Thank you in advance for your support of the students of District 124 and of our long-range strategic plan.
