The Greater Oklahoma City Chamber wants to know what you think about Oklahoma City Public Schools and has enlisted the help of some influential partners to make that happen.
Chamber and school district officials along with representatives from Oklahoma City and several community organizations gathered Tuesday inside Horace Mann Elementary to publicize the launch of a comprehensive online survey that will be used to shape education reform.
The survey, which is confidential, is available in English and Spanish. It targets school district parents, teachers and employees along with business owners and community members. The goal, officials said, is to have 4,800 surveys completed in a month.
“The health of Oklahoma City Public Schools is vital to this community,” said Teresa Rose, chairwoman of the chamber’s workforce and education committee. “As a community we all have a responsibility and a role in the health of this district.”
The questions vary, depending on the respondent. Parents, for example, are asked about school effectiveness, academics, and school and parent relations. The survey for district employees includes a section on training and professional development and student and teacher interaction.
