Wildman, Wanda N.
Evaluation and Research (E&R) staff of the Wake County Public Schools (WCPSS), North Carolina, have conducted spring surveys of school staff since 1992. This report contains information from the survey distributed in March 2001. Completed surveys were returned by 5,755 staff members. Survey results indicate that in the year 2000, more staff respondents enjoyed their work, 91% as compared with 85% the previous year, and more respondents thought that the climate at their school promotes learning. More respondents believed that their building facilities were adequate, and more thought that their school promotes understanding among students from a variety of backgrounds. Among the areas of concern was the fact that only 71% of the staff thought that staff development opportunities were adequate, and nearly 30% thought that the use of drugs and alcohol affected academic achievement. More staff respondents than in the previous year thought that students who threaten each other or fight are a serious problem in the schools, and only 66% of respondents agreed that students are aware of effective ways to keep themselves from behaving violently. Two attachments contain the survey and the responses in table form.(Contains 23 figures.) (SLD)
