Groveport Madison Schools has launched a survey to obtain input from district residents and business owners on a variety of topics.
The survey results will offer insights on several issues including school climate/culture, as well as potential grade-level configurations and the types of support services the district should consider when updating or replacing existing elementary and/or middle schools.
The survey is located on the “About Us” tab of the district’s website www.gocruisers.org, or by copying the following address into the search bar of your internet browser: http://www.gocruisers.org/SchoolClimateandGradeConfigurationSurvey.aspx.
As the Groveport Madison Schools makes plans for the future, school officials note one of the district’s primary concerns is how to address overcrowded and outdated elementary and middle schools. The district contracted with Hanover Research to conduct a study to determine what education will look like in the future and what information the district needs to consider before renovating or replacing any schools. Hanover worked with the school board and the administration to develop the survey. The company will gather all of the feedback and draft a report to present to the school board in March.
The next step of the process will involve pulling together focus groups of 10 to12 people to discuss aspects of the survey responses that need further clarification, as well as to gain insights into why respondents may have answered survey questions as they did.
“We are excited about the opportunity to hear from our community,” said Superintendent Bruce Hoover. “It is important that we walk down this path together and that we understand the concerns and perspectives from a variety of our stakeholders.”
The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete and the input is completely anonymous. The survey will remain available through Feb. 14.
