Important staff survey

School-based staff encouraged to provide input on services for SPED and at-risk students

All school-based staff are encouraged to take part in a confidential survey to capture information on policies and practices that influence teaching and learning for students with disabilities and students identified as at-risk in HISD schools. The survey, conducted by the American Institutes for Research (AIR), is part of a larger review by the third party consultant.

The data collected will be analyzed and reported alongside analyses of several other data sources, including a parent survey that will launch the first week of school and interviews and focus groups with district and school staff over the coming months.

Participation in the survey is voluntary, but all school-based staff are encouraged to take 15–20 minutes of their time to share their views and experiences. The effectiveness of the survey depends upon the candid and honest responses of employees, which will remain confidential. Names of respondents are not collected, and all data are aggregated to the district level; therefore, schools will not be identified in the analysis or the report.
