Community Feedback Survey

Polk County Public Schools has opened its annual Community Feedback Survey today (March 8, 2018).

Working with a committee, the Department of Assessment, Accountability & Evaluation created the Community Feedback Survey to measure public perception of the school district.  Improving public perception is one of the goals of the School District’s current Strategic Plan.

The survey was first conducted in the 2016-17 school year to gather baseline data.  Your participation in this year’s survey will allow us to gauge our progress in various categories.  The survey will be available to current students (grades 4 and higher), school and district staff, as well as parents and community members.

Links to the surveys can be found at the bottom of this email.  The survey will be open today (March 8th) through Friday, March 23rd.

Please note that if you are both an employee and a parent, we would appreciate you taking both the Staff survey and Parent & Community survey.

Each of you plays a critical role in improving public perception of Polk County Public Schools. We appreciate your participation. If you have questions about the Community Feedback Survey, please contact the Department of Assessment, Accountability and Evaluation at 863-534-0688.

So this happened at CRCA today. . .

Mrs. Jodi Johnson’s  “Fab Lab” has been learning and creating all sorts of things. They learned about Newton’s Laws of Motion,  and they had to plan, prepare and create their own carbon dioxide powered racer.  It was VERY exciting in the atrium today!  More information including video footage is coming soon!

Testing begins soon!  It is VERY important that students be at school on time every day  but attendance is especially important during testing time.  Our testing schedule is LONG but we wanted you to know when those dates are so that you can be aware.
