Brazosport Independent School District Community Survey Summary.
Brazosport Independent School District, Freeport, TX.
Results of a 1980-81 survey of the perception of the Brazosport (Freeport, Texas) community regarding the Brazosport Independent School District (BISD) are summarized. The survey instrument consisted of: (1) a cover letter from the superintendent; (2) Part I--a series of multiple-choice questions on various education issues in Brazosport; (3) Part II--a scaled-response section on the importance of certain items to education and an evaluation of BISD's performance in addressing these items; (4) Part III--demographic questions for the survey population; and (5) Part IV--a comments section inviting respondents to write additional remarks about the district and/or public education. Results are based on surveys returned by 1013 citizens, 635 staff members, and 256 students. The results for Part I are presented in 11 tables, three which include comparisons of 1980 Gallup Poll results with the BISD results. The results covering the five subject areas of Part II are shown in 10 tables which rate the importance of issues and assess the performance of the school district by individual groups. The Part II responses are correlated for all three groups. The demographics of the citizens and staff surveyed are summarized from responses to Part III. The survey instrument is included. (JW)
