From the Washoe County School District:
As part of an ongoing effort to continue effective communications with the public, the Washoe County School District Board of Trustees has released a community engagement survey. The survey is available to the entire community, and is designed to build on the Board's current communication and transparency with the public by asking participants for their feedback on high-priority school district topics and best practices for sharing information with them.
"We intend to use the data from this survey to enhance our current means of reaching the community with important education information, and in doing so, increase our level of community engagement," said Board President Barbara Clark.
The survey is available in English and Spanish, and participants can access it online. Beginning tomorrow, it will also be available in hard copy form (in both languages) at various locations including local libraries, community centers, and Children's Cabinet locations in Reno and Sparks. Trustees say this is an important part of a larger effort to build more effective two-way communication with WCSD stakeholders, including parents, staff, and other community members.
"The Trustees want to receive feedback from the public," said Clark. "As elected officials and as stewards of the District's mission and goals, we want to ensure everyone's voice is heard."
The survey closes on Monday, July 29, and the results will be presented to the Board at a later date. The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete, and the identity of participants is strictly confidential.
