RAVENA-COEYMANS-SELKIRK — The RCS school district has put out a survey seeking input from the community on what the district has accomplished and what still remains to be done.
Dubbed the district’s “culture and climate survey,” the online questionnaire is open to the public, whether you have students in the school district or not.
“Our school district is seeking input from our entire community as we reflect on what we have accomplished and what we have yet to accomplish,” according to the district’s website. “This culture and climate survey will offer participants an opportunity to rate the effectiveness of existing programs and protocols within the district. They will be asked for suggestions on where we should dedicate our efforts to make our school district the best it can be.”
The survey first asks demographic questions, such as your age range and position in the district — whether a parent, student, staff member, alumnus or community member — and what school you are affiliated with, if any.
The survey then goes on to ask a series of questions, such as whether you think the quality of education in the RCS district has improved, stayed the same or declined, your overall satisfaction with the district, how well you think the district prepares students for college and careers, what student programs you would like to see improved, added or changed in the district, and more.
The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete.
“District administration and the board of education will reflect on the results of this survey as they develop future goals, priorities and the effective allocation of resources,” according to the district website.
The survey will close at noon on Friday, Oct. 27. To participate in the survey, visit the district’s website at www.rcscsd.org.
