WORTH COUNTY SCHOOL SYSTEM NEEDS OUR HELP!
Please take a moment to fill out the survey below
Worth County Board of Education has asked us to share the following information:
VERY IMPORTANT for our Community. Please take a moment to read and fill out the surveys.
What an easy way to contribute to the betterment of our Schools!!
Worth County School District needs help from parents and stakeholders.
The process of monitoring stakeholder perceptions is important because it helps schools:
• Generate data and evidence for school improvement and accreditation purposes
• Gain support for improvement initiatives
• Create baseline measures for school improvement (pre- and post- measures)
AdvancED surveys produce useful, relevant results; allow direct comparison of results across schools; are research-based; employ time-tested, reliable questions; and leverage the experience of experts in the education and research field.
Please complete the appropriate survey by May 17, 2013. Remember, this will provide very important baseline data for us. We will ask parents and stakeholders to complete the surveys again in the fall.
