How Are We Doing? Results

February 28th, 2011 · No Comments

Each year I think it is important to survey our parents to find out “How We Are Doing?” at Lane.   All of the input from parents helps us to find ways to improve. Here a few highlights from the survey (the entire results can be found here):

Increase in parents stating their requests are handled well by office staff

Increase in parents stating that there is adequate supervision during arrival and dismissal times

Increase in parents stating there child feels secure on the bus (however- the number of 61% needs to be improved)

For me, the most important indicator is the final question,

“The overall performance of Lane School is. . . “

a. excellent

b. good

c. satisfactory

d. fair

e. poor

The results have been very similar for both years.  My goal is to reach 95% for combined “excellent” and “good.”

I am happy to report both years we have hit 95%.

Our annual peer aggression survey is in and the results can be found here.  Overall, our numbers are better than last year.  We are certainly focusing more on building community and looking at the social-emotional well being of all our students.  If you have any specific questions about the results, please feel free to  leave a comment or email me, and I will get back to you.

Results of Parent Survey

January 21st, 2010 · 1 Comment

Below are the results for our Lane Parent Survey.  I think of it as a “State of the Union” update for how we are doing.  Feedback (good or bad) is helpful as we try and make sure we are excellent in all areas.  One of the noticeable areas where we need to do some work is bus safety.  Too many students don’t feel 100% safe riding the bus.  This will be addressed immediately.  But overall I was pleased with the results.  95% of the parents rated “the overall performance of Lane School” either “excellent” or “good.” We’ll shoot for 100% as we move forward.
