On Monday, Sept. 30, all students were emailed a link to three Panorama surveys based around your school experience and student’s possible struggles.

“It’s something that’s we’re doing district-wide, kids third through 12th grade are taking it…and the feedback is really good, we’re really getting to some key issues where students and staff, where there are some gaps in terms of what we perceive and what students perceive,” said principal Chris Sartain Ed.D.

This isn’t the first time the district has used Panorama to do surveys, but this is the biggest way they’ve done it. This is the first time it’s been district-wide.

Sartain said, “We’ve always done senior exit surveys but we wanted a more comprehensive nine through 12 survey because it really is about all students.”

These surveys were given to collect data and see any possible issues that could be solved within the district.

The replies are currently being sorted through by administration throughout the district.

“The administrators have had training on analyzing the data and identifying trends. Each building is working with their leadership team to identify things that are going well in the building and celebrating those areas. They are also identifying that show up as opportunities for improvement,” said executive director Kristin Havens.

The district plans on repeating the exact same survey in the spring, as well as upcoming years.

With the replies given, students hope what they’ve said hasn’t fallen on deaf ears.

“I hope they can look through it, and then consider what students put because I was really truthful to it. I hope most students were and I hope whoever’s gonna look through it will take everything in, try to make it better,” said sophomore Mindy Lu.
