Pasco parents, students and staff, how do you rate your school?
Upon taking office, Pasco schools superintendent Kurt Browning and his team heard many complaints and compliments about the district's schools and their leadership. Some of the information prompted closer looks at the way things operated at certain locations.
Now Browning wants more feedback on the climate within the schools and the district as a whole, so he can address any concerns that rise to the level of needing action.
For five days beginning Feb. 11, the district will conduct a survey of all district employees and randomly selected parents and students (grades 4-12) to learn how they feel about issues targeted in the questions asked. The primary goal, assistant superintendent Amelia Larson told the Gradebook, is to make the schools positive places to learn and work.
"Our profession feels devalued right now," Larson said. "We want to see how do we take care of morale and climate as we go forward."
