Each year the Mercer Island School District uses various methods to gather feedback from students, parents and staff about our effectiveness and areas of improvement. Now in its fifth year, the Educational Effectiveness Survey (EES) is the primary tool that each school uses to help measure their performance relative to the nine Characteristics of Effective Schools. Parents, students and staff complete the EES each year with the results then used for school improvement planning.
In order to determine our level of performance and compare ourselves with other like districts and schools in the state, we have contracted with the Center for Education Effectiveness to coordinate the survey administration. Students will be taking their survey during the school day within the next few weeks and staff will take them during faculty meetings.
It is important that we receive parent feedback and hope you will participate. The survey can be found here: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/EES2013 The survey deadline has been extended to March 22nd to give you more time to respond.
