This month, staff will receive one of two VBCPS surveys: 2017 School Climate Survey or the Compass to 2020 Monitoring Survey.
Administrators, classroom teachers, specialists, school counselors and select teacher assistants will receive the 2017 School School Climate Survey via email beginning the week of April 3. The last day to return the survey is May 5. This online survey provides an opportunity for staff to provide feedback about their school’s environment as well as feedback on the division’s navigational markers, which are identified key indicators that measure progress on the division’s strategic framework, Compass to 2020. Results from the School Climate Survey portion are provided to the principals to identify areas of school improvement. Results regarding the division’s navigational markers are published as part of each site’s annual School Report Cards and used for ongoing divisionwide continuous improvement.
Staff members who do not traditionally participate in the School Climate Survey such as bus drivers, custodians and security staff as well as departmental staff will receive an email invitation the week of April 17 to participate in the Compass to 2020 Monitoring Survey. This survey, which also ends May 5, provides staff the opportunity to give input on divisionwide navigational markers. These results are also used to measure continuous improvement divisionwide.
Staff members who do not receive their designated survey should check “Clutter” mailboxes. Or, if you previously opted out from one of the platforms used to administer the survey (Research.net or SurveyMonkey.com), you will need to opt back in using this link to receive surveys.
Both of these surveys are administered by the Department of Planning, Innovation and Accountability which provides leadership and support to champion the work of Compass to 2020; oversees test administration and data use; and evaluates the division’s programs, services and initiatives.
If you have any questions about the surveys, please contact Robert Veigel, research specialist, at Robert.Veigel@vbschools.com or 757-263-1107.
