Tyler ISD parents and students asked to complete survey

Posted: Updated:

***TYLER ISD Press Release****

Tyler ISD is embarking on a new and innovative effort to engage all segments of the community and increase involvement in discussions on how to improve schools.

The first step in this process will be a parent survey to identify strengths and areas needing improvement at each campus. The survey will launch on Wednesday, February 27, and will ask parents to share their thoughts regarding the overall campus climate, including areas such as safety and behavior, communications, instructional programs and support services.

"We welcome this survey as it invites parents to share their thoughts on what we do well and where we can improve," said Gary Mooring, Tyler ISD Superintendent. "Our conversations will continue beyond this one initiative. Engaging in an ongoing, constructive dialogue is the best way to work toward continuous improvement."

Parents for whom the District has an email address on file will receive email invitations to participate in the survey. Any parent who does not receive an email invitation may access the survey, at home or via smartphone, through a link posted on the District's website at tylerisd.org. Any parent without Internet access may complete the survey at any Tyler ISD school, or a paper copy may be requested by contacting the Tyler ISD Communications Department at 903.262.1064.

The District is working with independent research and communication firm K12 Insight, which will administer the survey. Parent responses will be confidential, with reports shared in a manner which does not identify individuals.

Once the reports are reviewed by the Tyler ISD leadership team, they will be made available to the public, along with specific actions parents can expect as a result of their feedback. Future projects are planned to ensure that all stakeholders have a voice in this critical dialogue and that every facet of the District continues to improve.

"We embrace another opportunity to hear from all of our parents, and I thank all our community partners who are helping us with outreach," said Mooring. "I know that such transparency will help us build more trust which will lead to more productive collaboration as we work toward achieving our mission of providing all students a premier education and preparing them to be successful, productive citizens."
