From:   Memorial-Spaulding School Council

Re:       Results of the Memorial-Spaulding School Survey

Date:    April 12, 2016

Thank you to everyone who completed this survey. Your input will enable us to identify the areas of strength and areas we would like to improve at Memorial-Spaulding School. As you can see from the results below, the staff and parents have many common beliefs about Memorial-Spaulding. This is very positive.

Where do we go from here? Based on the results, the School Council will begin to determine the focus of our School Improvement Goals over the next three years on the areas below:

  • Meeting the needs of Individual learners
  • Academic Progress
  • Social Emotional Needs
  • Homework
  • * Class size and Facilities are being addressed at the district level and will be explained at our upcoming meetings.

The School Council will begin to generate ideas to determine improvement strategies, initiatives and activities at our next meeting, Thursday, June 2 from 4-5 PM. We would like to invite any parents/guardians to attend this meeting. At our next Faculty meeting we will be working on determining next steps as well. In the end, we will have goals and activities with the new principal, Tom Morris so he can include them in the next School Improvement plan.
