The Lake Pend Oreille School District is asking that all community members take part in a survey meant to help them “develop priorities” for the district.
The survey asks the participant to describe themselves as either an LPOSD student, parent, staff member or a community member unaffiliated with the district. It asks what the participant believes are the biggest strengths and weaknesses of the district, as well as what they think are the greatest challenges the district will face in coming years. It only takes a few minutes to complete.
The survey is part of LPOSD’s attempt to use community input while creating a 2018-2023 strategic plan.
“It is of critical importance that we create a long-term plan which incorporates feedback from our stakeholders throughout the county,” said Superintendent Shawn Woodward in an email, adding that the plan should reflect community priorities. “The survey will not only help us identify things that may require immediate district attention, but also those things that should be considered long term as well.”
