Time for Pasco school employees, parents and students to speak up



Like your Pasco County school? Hate it? The district administration wants to know.

This morning, the school district launched a one-week online survey to determine areas where people think the schools are performing well, and where they need improvement. Several classes throughout the district have been randomly selected for parents and students to participate as well. Letters should be going home today explaining the goals.

"A good return rate is important to the success of any survey and for results to be most useful for planning purposes," research and accountabilty director Peggy Jones said in an email to principals. "The usefulness of the survey results for your school depends on a good representation of parents, students, and staff.  Is it very important that as many of these forms as possible be completed."

Every person chosen to answer the questions will have an individual code, so no one can respond multiple times. Superintendent Kurt Browning has said he plans to use the information gathered to help identify issues and concerns that need further attention. The results are expected to be made public in the future. Stay tuned.
