Staff Listening Sessions & Survey

The purpose of the staff listening sessions was to gather input to be used to guide the development of a District-wide staff survey. The value of the listening session input was limited to qualitative data. Themes from the sessions were used to guide the district to where it might further investigate its climate and culture so as to better inform a plan for improvement or future strategic plan. Six staff listening sessions were held between July-September, 2022, with 26 attendees representing all both support staff and certified staff from all three schools and the district office. 

The purpose of the fall staff engagement survey is to obtain feedback on the District’s culture to implement systemic improvements so that our District can be the best it can be.
