Community Unit District 300 is inviting all stakeholders to participate in a strategic planning survey the district will use to develop a shared vision for the local school district.
Superintendent Michael Bregy and the school board launched a new strategic planning process at the beginning of the school year.
The anonymous survey will be administered by ECRA, an independent educational research firm. The survey will ask for your perceptions on a number of issues related to the district.
Beginning Monday, Jan. 9, parents will receive a survey via email or mail. Parents will have until Monday, Jan. 23 to complete the survey.
A staff survey will also be sent out via email and staff will have until Monday, Jan. 23 to submit their answers.
Students in eighth and 12tgh grades will have the opportunity to complete the survey in class beginning Monday, Jan. 9.
Community members who are not current parents or staff of the district are invited to follow a link to the community survey, which can be found at ecrasurvey.com/d300community. Staff, parents, students and other stakeholders should not use the community link.
