As a part of our ongoing efforts to remain in the cycle of continuous improvement, we will gather perceptions data on an annual basis from our stakeholders. Each year, in the spring, The Teachers' College of Columbia University will administer our School Climate Survey. After data gathering, we'll take a deep dive into the results and use the data to inform our decisions around school culture, structure and policies, and curriculum and instruction. As an emerging school, we have had outstanding positive feedback. While we enjoyed high overall ratings with the grade of A or B, we also want to focus on the areas for improvement. Our staff and Board of Trustees will continue to review the data and have conversations about next steps for improvement in the identified areas.
All stakeholders are encouraged to read the briefings and continue to share their voices at every available opportunity such as:
-The monthly Parent Coffee sessions
-Our monthly School Site Council/School Advisory Council meetings
-Sending an email to the Executive Director, Chief of Academic Innovation, Deans, faculty, or other staff members
-Make an appointment or drop in to meet with the Executive Director/CEO, Chief of Academic Innovation, Deans, faculty member, or another staff member, and/or
-Make a phone call to any staff to share more feedback.
We must keep the dialogue flowing!
The data collected also serves to inform our Local Control Accountability Plan goals (LCAP), Charter Renewals, WASC Self-study plans, grant applications, partnership development, and helps to make decisions about culture, curriculum, professional development, and our entire academic program.
We look forward to using the results to guide our plans as we endeavor to create a school that will have a positive impact upon every member of our Learning Community. Thank you again for staying engaged to make that reality possible.
