District launches survey in next step of strategic planning
As part of a strategic planning process launched in January 2017, the Higley Unified School District is conducting a districtwide survey Feb. 13 through Feb. 26. The survey is open to employees, parents, community members and Higley students in seventh through 12th grade. Involvement of the entire community is essential to the development of a long-term framework for decision making that builds upon common values held by the Higley community.
Among Higley’s top priorities this school year is the development of this strategic plan. This plan will articulate organizational and stakeholder priorities through the authentic engagement of parents, employees, and community members.
Higley families and employees will receive an email invitation to complete the survey, or can click on the link at the bottom of this announcement. Community members without children attending Higley can also use this link. The link will take all participants to a third-party website where users will identify their affiliation to the district to take the proper survey. All responses will remain anonymous.
ECRA Group Inc., an independent research firm, is conducting the surveys. The firm will analyze responses and prepare a strategic plan report for Higley to share with the community in April 2017. ECRA is an established leader in the areas of educational assessment, research, and strategic planning. Based in Schaumburg, Ill., ECRA has more than 35 years of experience helping educational organizations across the nation better understand and document their performance, and chart a course for the future.
