Superintendent George Mavroulis shared results from the 2019 staff climate survey, which was once again administered by School Perceptions, at the Board of Education regular meeting on Monday, April 8.
Mavroulis noted scores were down at every building. The Board asked that action steps be developed at each school and that the District share share that information at a regular meeting in June.
Among the areas that received the lowest scores were: slow down the pace of new initiatives, more time to plan and collaborate, more professional development on addressing emerging needs of students, more staff voice in decision-making, meaningful professional development days, clear expectations for staff and students, and increased pay for staff and substitutes.
"We heard what most concerned staff and we will do better,'' Mavroulis said.
What are the best things about our schools and District? Mavroulis said they include an emphasis on wellness and self-care, community, parental and Board support, committed and talented staff, positive and collaborative atmosphere, access to resources, District focus on equity work, incredible students, and strong academic program
