CSC hears school survey results

The preliminary results of a recent School Advisory Council survey of teachers and parents were shared with the Carlisle School Committee (CSC) on February 7.

Survey participation was high, with 57 teachers and 254 families representing 426 students, sending in data. The majority were satisfied with the high standards for student learning, safety, behavior and modeling respect. They felt the school is a welcoming and supportive place, students feel positively about their school and they are satisfied with the quality of the teaching staff. Parents felt they are informed about school issues, classroom activities and expectations.

The teacher survey results show a need to improve communications between the administration and staff, the need to involve teachers in important decisions that affect them, to bring in more productive and useful staff development and improve the music and world language curricular areas.

Parents were concerned about the adequacy of instructional differentiation so that all students are appropriately challenged. They also want to see more required writing.
