Parents of students in the Aledo Independent School District most likely received an e-mail invitation received on Sunday that encourages them to respond to a confidential and anonymous climate survey of the District. Accumulated responses will be used for goal-setting at individual campuses and at the District level for the 2015-’16 school year and beyond. The electronic surveys must be completed no later than midnight on Sunday, May 24.
“This climate survey gives our parents a chance to be heard,” said AISD Deputy Superintendent Lynn McKinney. “We hope many of our parents will respond so that we can continue to improve our services to students.”
McKinney also said the survey is developed with the help of an outside firm which will gather the feedback and develop a report of the results.
“We do not see individual responses at the District level; the results are compiled and then the reports are supplied to us,” she said. “This ensures total confidentiality and anonymity by survey respondents.”
Parents with children at more than one campus will have the opportunity to rate each campus, its atmosphere of respectfulness and safety, and comment on strengths and potential areas of improvement. The survey also includes a section for rating the District as a whole.
Any interested parent with children in Aledo ISD schools who did not receive the e-mail survey by the end of the weekend should contact Lynn McKinney by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) to receive an electronic survey invitation.
