Danvers Public Schools is asking all staff, parents, community members and alumni to participate in the Perspectives on the District Survey launching on May 17, 2016. Systemically engaging all of our stakeholders ensures that your voices are part of our decision-making process. Together, we will provide our students with a 21st century learning environment that enables them to compete in a diverse global workforce.
Designed by independent technology and communications firm K12 Insight, the survey asks participants to share their thoughts about key issues, community relations, school operations and parent and community involvement, among others. As privacy, candor and widespread participation are essential to our outreach efforts, survey responses are confidential and anonymous. Results will only be delivered collectively, with no individual data or identifying information in any report.
Currently, the Danvers Public Schools is in the third year of our five-year strategic plan. (To read the 13-18 DPS Strategic plan, visit http://danverspublicschools.org/district/danvers-public-school-strategic-plan-2013-2018/.) The plan provides for significant improvements in the areas of student achievement, family and community engagement, human resource management and development and management and operations. In addition, the plan includes the mission and core values statements, as well as a vision statement that accurately reflects the district’s goals for the future.
Your feedback enables us to implement a strategic plan that empowers us to fulfill our district mission. Once the survey has closed on Tuesday, May 31, 2016, district leadership will share results with the community, along with an explanation of how we will use the data to provide all of our students with a 21st century education that prepares them for college and career.
