Nearly two dozen Hamilton School District staff members will participate in a summer project designed to learn more about the perceptions and expectations parents have for their children’s schools.
School staff will contact 100 randomly-selected parents and ask them to participate in a Learning Environment Review – a face-to-face interview in which parents are able to discuss the learning environment at their children’s schools.
The process is being used to gather data for one of the Strategic Plan strategies that indicates the district will “foster learning environments that nurture social and emotional development and ensure maximum achievement for each child.”
The Learning Environment Review is fashioned after the Quality Interviews that were used in the district in the mid-1990s to determine parent expectations and monitor progress on a wide range of issues. The review was altered this year to focus on the learning environment.
School staff will be contacting selected parents in June and July to set up interviews at a school location. For more information about the Learning Environment Reviews, please contact Public Information Coordinator Denise Dorn Lindberg, at (262) 246-1973 ext. 1106.
