(WHAS 11)--The Jefferson County Public Schools district is set begin its annual Comprehensive School Survey Feb. 4 - 22.
The survey collects data about academics, community, ethics, safety and more.
The CSS is provided annually to all staff, parents, and students in grades four through twelve for the purpose of collecting data concerning academic indicators, school community, empathy, ethics, service, environment, safety, and employee job satisfaction.
Students in grades four through twelve will complete the CSS at school during the school day. All
parents/guardians who have registered for Parent Portal will receive an e-mail with a link directing
them to the new Data Management Survey Tool (DMST), where they can complete the survey.
Parents who do not have computer access or an e-mail account will be provided with a paper-and-pencil survey form. Schools are being asked to provide parents with access to the school's computer lab so that they may complete their survey online.
The district uses the annual CSS data for a variety of purposes, including
- Comprehensive District Improvement Plan (CDIP) development
- Comprehensive School Improvement Plan (CSIP) development
- Strategic planning, policy making, and benchmarking processes
- Formative evaluation of programs, projects, innovations, and grants
