A random sample of 525 Hamilton School District residents will be called during the evenings of Dec. 6-14 as part of a community survey. Student volunteers will make the telephone calls between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. asking residents to respond to the 54-question survey. Each survey will take about 10 minutes to complete.
The survey is a follow-up to ones conducted four and seven years ago. The district conducts the survey to:
- learn the expectations and priorities the community has for its schools;
- understand community sentiment on critical school issues;
- verify perceptions of satisfaction with the district’s overall performance; and
- evaluate and plan communication.
School officials are asking community members for their cooperation if they are contacted.
“It’s important to learn the perceptions of all members in our community – including those who do and do not have children enrolled in our schools,” Public Information Coordinator Denise Dorn Lindberg said. “When contacted by one of our volunteer callers, I hope residents will agree to participate in the survey.”
