JCSD1 Board Gets Positive Climate Survey For District

At their meeting Monday night, the Johnson County School District One Board of Trustees got the latest School Climate Survey, which was neutral to positive in all 12 dimensions.

District Technology Director Andrea Gilbert told the board that the survey was delivered to students, staff and parents back in February, and although parent response wasn't as high as hoped, most staff and students were reached with the survey.

The respondents were asked to judge the district ranging from a grade of “1” to a grade of “5.”
The district scored a 2.5 or higher in all categories.

Gilbert explains further about the grading

According to information provided at the meeting, the School Climate refers to the quality and character of school life related to norms and values, social interactions, and organizational structures, as experienced by members of the school community: the students, staff and parents.

So what's next? So far the district has accomplished two of 5 stages with the evaluations, completing Stage 1:Preparation and Stage 2: Evaluation. Remaining still are Stage 3: Understanding and Action Planning; Stage 4:Implementation; and Stage 5: Re-evaluation.
