CRANBURY: School district’s online survey seeks feedback from residents

CRANBURY – The Cranbury School District is planning for the future.
The district is inviting all of its stakeholders – parents, staff, students and members of the community – to participate in a brief online survey to help the district understand residents’ opinions on the district’s curriculum, student climate, use of technology, professional development and efforts toward community engagement.
“This is the first step in a multi-phase process that will help us create a strategic plan for our district,” said Chief School Administrator Susan Genco. “We want to begin by doing exactly what we ask our students to do, which is to ask questions, to seek information, and to make informed decisions.”
Online surveys will be sent to parents and staff via email. Members of the public who wish to contribute their thoughts can access the survey through a link on the district’s website The online survey will open on Friday, Nov. 13, 2015 and will close on Monday, Dec. 7, 2015.
“Between this survey and the public meetings we will be having throughout this process, we want to evaluate what we do well, identify where we can improve and use the information to develop a long-range plan to advance the education of our students,” Genco said. “I know we are a community filled with parents, staff and residents who care deeply about education and the success of our students. We hope they will take just a few minutes out of their day to share their valued opinions with us.”
The survey is part of a larger strategic planning initiative that will result in a new mission statement for the district and a series of specific goals for students, staff, administrators and board of education members.
