Staff Survey Results, 1999-2000. Eye on Evaluation. E&R Report.
Evaluation and Research staff of the Wake County Public School System (WCPSS), North Carolina, have conducted spring surveys of school staff since 1992. These surveys provide important information about staff perceptions of individual schools, the system overall, and specific programs and initiatives. School administrators and professionals, including teachers, counselors, media specialists, nurses, and social workers, have participated in these surveys. In April 2000, 276 administrator surveys and 6,500 professional surveys were distributed; 85% of administrative staff and 78% of professional staff returned the surveys, a slightly lower response rate than in the 1998 administration. Responses of administrators and professional staff tended to be more positive than or as positive in 1998. The most positive changes were in the areas of school building facilities, instructional supplies, school-level collaborative planning, high expectations of students, academic excellence, and character education. The negative changes were small and were in the area of central office communication. The overall satisfaction rate was high, with over 80% of both groups agreeing or strongly agreeing that their schools were safe, with an orderly and purposeful climate that promoted learning and that the school district was of high quality. The two surveys and tables of responses are attached. (SLD)
