NISD Survey Reveals Parents are Consistently Pleased with the District
Approximately 2,600 parents responded to the Northwest ISD parent survey. The survey was available for 17 days at the end of November through the beginning of December. According to Education Service Center Region XI, who conducted and managed the survey, results show that perceptions across the topic areas continue to remain highly favorable. Parents report that their children’s schools are positive, welcoming and safe, while students are excited to go to school and participate in school activities. In addition, if their children have a problem, parents believe they have someone with whom to speak. These results are consistent for the past seven years. Highlights from the survey include:
- 94% feel welcome at their child’s school.
- 95% agree their child feels safe at school.
- 98% believe their child’s school is clean and well-maintained.
- 91% feel their child receives instruction preparing them for the next level of education.
“I would like to thank everyone who participated and shared their thoughts with us,” said Superintendent of Schools Ryder Warren, Ed.D. “This survey is a necessary part of NISD’s efforts in continuous improvement. Your voices will be heard as we share these results with our district leadership team and staff. Thank you for your continued partnership.”
The survey consisted of six categories (school climate, communications, safe and orderly environment, instructional programs, student services and support services) and a district section with general questions and demographic data. All parents, guardians and caregivers of children attending an NISD school had the option to participate in the online survey.
“As one of the fastest growing school districts in the metroplex, the feedback is crucial as we plan for very important years ahead,” Warren said. “The results provide us with key areas in which we can improve and the needs that are most important to our parents.”
Each principal and department head will review survey results for insight on how to be more responsive to the necessities of all our parents. Click here to view the complete, final report. The individual campus reports are below.
