Hayward schools survey to be conducted
Submitted By Karen Mangon
Hayward, CA (January 28, 2008) - Parents and community members in Hayward will soon have a chance to make their opinions known about schools in their district. The
Hayward Unified School District (HUSD) will be conducting a mail survey to measure the community's perceptions, satisfaction, and needs related to the school district's operations. The survey will be administered by students at California State University East Bay (CSUEB).
"We need to better understand the community's perceptions about our public schools," stated HUSD Superintendent Dale Vigil. "We are thrilled to involve our local university students to conduct the comprehensive survey. I highly encourage everyone who receives the survey to complete it and send it back right away. We value your opinion and know your feedback will help us improve our efforts."
The purpose of the survey is to help the HUSD administration gauge community perceptions related to various performance indicators. The survey results will provide a benchmark for the district that will identify need and opportunity areas. These results will be well publicized and shared with the community.
Randomly selected parents of students in the district will receive the survey during February. A slightly shorter version will be sent to randomly chosen members of the community at large who do not have students currently attending schools in the district. All responses will be kept confidential. A formal report will be presented to the district in April 2008. For more information about the survey, contact Dr. Steve Ugbah, Professor of Marketing & Entrepreneurship at CSUEB, at (510) 885-3317.
