This year’s survey also differs in the questions asked. In previous years, parents, staff, students and community members asked for input on particular calendar options.
This year, the survey is made up of specific questions to help with the calendar building process, Range-Stanton said. This includes a portion that asks survey-takers to rate the importance of calendar options on a scale of 1 to 5.
In 2018, for the 2019-20 academic calendar, the district had about 4,300 respondents. The year prior, there were roughly 6,000 respondents, according to Range-Stanton.
