May 2017 Parent/Guardian Survey Data

Dear Madison Parents, Guardians, and Community Members,

For the second consecutive year, Madison has sent its parent community a climate survey. The survey was open for the first three weeks of May 2017. This year's survey had 62 responses, or about 26% student representation.

According to SurveyGizmo, surveys that are distributed internally (such as to employees only) generally have a much higher response rate than those distributed to external audiences (such as a parent community). External surveys, such as our annual parent survey, typically average a 10-15% response rate. At 26% Madison's survey response rate is much, much higher than your average external survey! Thank you!

Most responses on our parent survey are on a scale where:
1= Strongly Disagree  to 5 = Strongly Agree.

The survey data will be used to inform our SIP (School Improvement Plan) and PBIS (Positive Behavior &  Intervention Supports) planning for next year.

Thank you for your survey feedback, and for all you do in supporting our kids and our Marvelous Madison Community!

Follow the "Read More" link to see this year's survey data.
