EGUSD asks students, staff and parents to participate in National Speak Up Survey
The Elk Grove Unified School District is seeking input from students, staff and parents about technology use and education through the national “Speak Up” survey administered by Project Tomorrow, a non-profit education organization.
EGUSD stakeholders are asked to take the survey online at http://www.speakup4schools.org/speakup2012/ and select whether you fall under the category of parents, students or teachers & administrators. The website asks for the user to enter the state and name of the school. Survey takers will then need to enter the “secret word” elkgrove to access the survey.
Individual responses are anonymous. They are associated with a school but are not tied to the individual. The survey is open now and will close on December 14, 2012.
The survey results will inform EGUSD about how participants feel about their education and the use of technology. Survey results may be used for planning and community discussion. Project Tomorrow releases national findings through a variety of venues including: Congressional Briefing in Washington, DC, national and regional conferences, e-mail distribution, Project Tomorrow website, and through Speak Up partners. According to Project Tomorrow, local, state and national stakeholders report using Speak Up data to inform their new programs and policies.
Sample questions on the surveys can be found online at http://www.tomorrow.org/speakup/pdfs/Sample_Survey_Jul%202010.pdf.
The survey and subsequent results are free of charge to both the people taking the survey and EGUSD.
