Willmar School District seeking input from the public

WILLMAR -- The Willmar School District is seeking the public's views about its operation.

The district has posted a survey for parents and community members on its website.

The online surveys will be available until June 15.

The survey comes in five versions -- one for the community and one each for the Kennedy and Roosevelt elementary schools, Middle School and Senior High School.

The surveys ask people to grade the schools' academic offerings, special education programs, extracurricular activities and parental involvement. They may also grade school pride, class size and Community Education programs.

The data received from the surveys will assist with the development of district goals and also help the district understand how satisfied the community is with the school district, according to a news release from Superintendent Jerry Kjergaard's office.

All of the surveys can be found on the district's website. Parents are asked to complete a survey for each building their children attend. People who have no children attending the district may complete the community survey.

Find the surveys on the homepage by clicking on "WPS Needs Assessment Surveys" under "News Articles"
