Update: The deadline has been extended until March 3.
TUSCALOOSA, Alabama – Tuscaloosa City Schools is embarking on a multi-faceted process to evaluate its schools and leadership, and the district is launching a survey to collect parent and staff feedback as part of that work.
The survey will launch Tuesday, Feb. 7, and remain open until Friday, Feb. 24. It invites feedback about academic support, student support, family involvement, school leadership, and school operations, among other topics.
Employees and parents will be emailed a personal invitation and survey link when the survey launches. Parents who do not receive an email invitation can take the survey at http://tiny.cc/TCSSurvey.
“The survey feedback will be combined with data points, observations, and discussions to create leadership evaluations,” Superintendent Mike Daria said. “The goal is to provide our leaders with actionable data that will help them grow professionally and better serve our students.”
TCS has partnered with independent research and communications firm K12 Insight to administer the survey. K12 Insight will compile the results, ensuring the confidentiality of all responses. No one in the district will be able to connect a participant to his or her answers.
The Leadership Effectiveness Survey is also available on the homepage at www.tuscaloosacityschools.com.
