To The Daily Sun,
Dear Shaker Regional School Board members:
I was happy to see the notice about a special meeting being held with regards to the Culture Survey requested by the community at our most recent school district meeting. I am pleased that the school board is taking action on this right away.
I would like to ask you to please consider the following while you are looking at options for this process:
— Use a third-party vendor.
— Ensure anonymity of respondents to obtain the best data results.
— Include all past employees who have left the district within the last 2-3 years.
— Create a small survey committee, as recommended, that would include staff members, parents, community members and school board members. As requested, please include Roy Roberts as one of these committee members. This committee should help with decisions about the vendor being used, the data to be obtained through the survey, review and analyze the response data when received, and potentially make recommendations to the school board for future actions.
— Include parent, student and community member surveys.
— This culture survey process should not be filtered through the SAU office. All communications with regards to the vendor, survey questions, data, etc. should be communicated with the survey overview committee/school board directly
— Plan and publicize a meeting when the survey data and analysis will be made available to the public and what action the school board may take with regards to the data obtained
I hope that this process will help to create the transparency that community members are striving for, and that we can help to rebuild the trust and confidence that has always been a huge cornerstone of the Shaker Regional School District.
Thank you for your consideration.
