Frisco ISD is looking to identify gaps and help improve planning processes through a survey of all staff members, parents and fourth- through 12th-grade students.

Associate Deputy Superintendent Wes Cunningham said the surveys intend to collect opinions from staff, parents and students. Survey information can be used to inform improvement efforts by the district while identifying gaps and alignments of stakeholder perceptions.

“These are things that support the [instructional support team], the district departments, campus leadership, and it’s used to help us gather information needed to support the [operation] of the district,” he said during a March 23 board of trustees workshop meeting.

Students will be asked to complete a survey during school hours. Parents can preview the surveys for elementary students and secondary students via FISD's website. Parents should have received a direct link April 12 via email to complete their own survey. Staff members will receive a direct email with directions on how to complete the survey.

All surveys are due by April 26, according to a district news release.

Responses will be confidential, and final reports to the board of trustees and the public will only include overall results. The district partnered with K12 Insight, an independent research and communications firm, to administer the survey and analyze the results. Results will be compiled with the firm and presented to the board at its regular June meeting.

FISD has regularly conducted surveys for parents and staff since 2015, according to a board presentation made March 23. Since 2017, the district has conducted targeted needs surveys gathering responses on subjects such as small schools models, prekindergarten expansion and online versus in-person instruction.
