FCSD Survey Creates Benchmarks


The Fulton City School District has engaged community members, parents, students and teachers in collecting data to be used for school improvement initiatives.
Over 2,200 respondents answered survey questions with categorized answers of an item being either an asset, an emerging strength or potential risk.
Surveys were broken down into the following main components: school leaders’ practices and decisions; curriculum development and support; teacher practice and decisions; student social, emotional and developmental health; and family and community engagement. Favored positively were school leaders talking about the importance of learning to students, use of a strong curriculum, promotion of music and art in Fulton schools, use of technology to improve learning experiences, schools having clear rules and family-school connections are strengthening, among several other highlights.
The data collected assists building leadership teams and district officials to identify similarities and differences between what parents, students and staff identify strengths and weaknesses in the areas mentioned above. Information collected will also assist building level and district teams with the school improvement process.
