Strategic Plan Survey

WCSD Strategic Plan Results

To help refine and focus the District Strategic Plan the Board of Education of the Washington County School District sought feedback from parents regarding their experiences with their students’ schools. An invitation to participate in an online survey was emailed to one parent of each household that had at least one student enrolled. At the end of the survey the parent was asked if they would like to re-take the survey with another student in mind. Thus, a parent could provide feedback about each of their students’ schools.

The survey was available for a two-week period in January, 2022. Invitations were emailed to 19,706 households. Surveys from
2,783 households were returned (14.1%). Parents responded regarding 3,722 of the 35,379 students enrolled in the District (10.5%).
