School district now includes all community members in annual survey

Residents can take school quality stakeholder survey online until May 8

Pleasanton Unified School District has expanded this year’s school quality stakeholder survey to include more residents in “listening and engaging in conversations around how the district best serves students, staff and the community.”

The online survey was limited to just faculty, parents and middle and high school students when it first launched last year, but this time district officials aim to “make it a more inclusive process.”

“We wanted to honor that and make it more inclusive to the entire community this year,” PUSD spokesman Patrick Gannon told the Weekly. “When we were reporting last year’s survey results, we got feedback from the board about expanding it to potentially include members of the community that didn’t have kids in school, and so we decided to act on that.”

Community members can answer open-ended questions about district quality and support, and questions for parents, students and staff focus on school leadership, safety and behavior, academic preparation and student support.

The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete and is “a critical part of understanding what we’re doing well and identifying opportunities for growth,” according to Superintendent David Haglund.

“Insight gathered through this survey will help us better understand how we can best serve our students, their families, and our PUSD team members,” Haglund said.

The survey -- which can be taken on any computer, tablet or smartphone -- is open through May 8 and offered in English, Spanish and Chinese. All survey responses are confidential. To take the survey, click on the following link:

Another survey we waste our time on. Haglund definitely does not care. They will put lies of the survey out just as they lied to us about VH principal and Amadors principal. Instead of interim principal we need an Interim Superintendent. Now that Douglas is finally out after years of complaints maybe we can say bye to the mess we have calling himself a superintendent. He will be at the community meeting next week dishing out more lies.

Dr. Haglund is relatively new to our district. He will not be leaving unless of his own free will. Petitioning the board to have Haglund act (in whatever way is best—different for every topic) is likely the only way you will see change.

Sorry, but further commenting on this topic has been closed.
