2017 EES Parent Survey Results

A confidential survey, administered by the Center for Educational Effectiveness, was conducted in April 2017. A total of 57 surveys were completed at this building and 1,576 district-wide.

Research on effective schools identified common characteristics of high-performing schools known as the 9 Characteristics. You’ll find 8 Characteristics in the charts below. Note: The Characteristic, “Focused Professional Development”, is a professional activity conducted amongst the adult school community and is rarely viewed by parents. Thus questions regarding this Characteristic are not a part of the survey and do not appear in this document.


Mean scores represent the entire spectrum of responses, and therefore, will show the impact of negativity (Seldom True and Almost Never True responses). The higher the mean score, the more positive the response. The mean score scale is 1-5, with 5 being the most positive.
