I admit that I got the title for this post from my husband’s shampoo bottle.
Last month I launched a “Your Voice Counts” climate survey for one of our school districts. Like all districts in South Carolina, Clover School District is required by the state Department of Education to conduct a climate survey; however, Clover was interested in providing a more focused localized one that would provide feedback specific to new district goals and objectives.
District spokesman Mychal Frost contacted K12 Insight for assistance in crafting a survey highlighting four particular areas of the school environment — academic, social, physical and parent volunteerism. Parents, students and teachers were asked to weigh in with their feedback.
Mychal was very pleased with the final version, saying that K12 Insight transformed a flat surveyinto a robust communications tool that will unite Clover School District stakeholders in speaking up on critical issues. “Only by working strategically and collaboratively, can we make the most appropriate decisions for our district,” he said.
Now Mychal and Superintendent Dr. Marc Sosne are anxious to view the survey responses. As Dr. Sosne put it, “The results will speak volumes.”
