District 62 is seeking input from parents, community members and businesses in a survey which will help inform new goals for the district, according to a statement from the administration on Friday.
The survey, which will be mailed the first week of October, may be completed online or by mail, will cover five areas the board of education is considering in setting new goals: programs and services, communications, technology, facilities and overall satisfaction.
Dr. Jane L. Westerhold, superintendent, said parents will be asked for additional feedback throughout the survey.
“The reason for offering a survey is the need for inclusiveness,” Westerhold said, “We want to ask our stakeholders to give feedback on how the district is doing and plan for the future.”
The new plan comes after the district completed Master Plan renovations, academic improvements and three-year district goals, according to the press release.
District 62 hired an independent research firm, School Perceptions, based in Wisconsin, to complete the surveys.
One survey per person will be accepted. For a second survey for an adult in a household, or for Spanish translations, residents may call District 62’s administration office at (847) 824-1136.
The survey takes approximately 15 minutes to complete and will be available online through Oct. 15.
