Survey results show Cape district successful By.. Kerry Kesr The Cape Heniopen School Dis- trict Board of Education, during its Thursday, April 24 meeting, learned results from a recently completed community opinion survey reflect overall satisfaction with the school districL A total of 2,671 students, em- ployees, parents and community members responded to the survey that was distributed to 11,826 peo- ple. The survey's intention was to gather data on public perception of what is important in Cape dis- trict education and how successful the district is. The following shows the order of those things the survey results indicate the public deems impor- tant, as reflected by the mean: mathematics, safety, discipline, use of finances, science, atmos- phere, technology, language arts, budget adequacy, information sharing, community/parent in- volvement, remediation, guid- ance, social studies, public rela- tions, food service, maintenance, transportation, policy/governance, gifted and talented, psychological services, testing, health and physi- cal education, modernization arts, electives, athletics and extracur- ricular. The following shows the order of those things the survey results indicate the public deems success- fill, as reflected by the mean: ath- letics, science, math, health and physical education, language arts, social studies, maintenance, trans- portation, arts, food service, elec- fives, extracurriculars, technolo- gy, psychological services, test- ing, safety, modernization, public relations, budget adequacy, poli- cy/government, remediation, gift, ed and talented, atmosphere, com- munity/parent involvement, use of finances, information sharing, guidance and discipline. "Although overall, the results were successful, we know we still have areas we need to look at," said John Kreitzer, director of in- slxucfioa. "The board's going to look at things that are most important to the public and least successful and see how they match up. That's how we'll set our goals," said Kreitzer. Kreitzer said that one of the dis- trict's biggest concerns about tbe survey's results is that parents, community members and minori- ties had a poor response rate. On- ly 11 percent Of the surveys, dis- tributed to parents and community members with the district's annual financial report, were returnod. He was pleased, however, with the high return rate and results from students. 'Whey are the di- rect service recipients, so they have a better idea of the day-to- day school environment and activ- ities,, said Kreitzer. He added that he expects the board will revise the surveying process next year to encourage more community response, "espe- cially from those who are under- represented."
