KISD: Campus Climate Check-In Generates High Participation In Kisd Community
Keller ISD invited parents, students, employees, and the community to participate in a Campus Climate Check-In using Thoughtexchange over a two-week period in May 2019, and this District saw 4,939 individuals provide 128,726 ratings on a total of 5,470 thoughts about its campuses.
After reviewing these thoughts, it was clear the community most values that KISD campuses employ quality teachers and staff, and want to see schools continue to remain committed to hiring and cultivating exceptional educators. Positive school culture was another point of emphasis for participants, as thoughts suggested this was a strength for many campuses and something that needs to be prioritized at others.
Additional areas of focus for participants were campus facilities, with many sharing thoughts about facility needs, while others praising the efforts of the District’s custodial staff to keep educational environments clean. Campus communication and support for students were two other themes that came through prominently, with participants both complementing campus’ efforts and requesting continued vigilance in providing superior customer service.
Student behavior and discipline issues were also common, with participants sharing suggestions on areas in which campuses can improve. Both schools and District administrators are aware and already addressing many of the concerns shared.
Campus administrators will review thoughts submitted about their respective campuses over the coming weeks and months. The feedback will be used to effectively plan for the 2019-20 school year and establish goals that ensure Keller ISD campuses are building on their strengths while addressing those areas that require a stronger focus.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to participate in the Campus Climate Check-In. If you did not have the chance to share your feedback through this event, please know that you are always welcome to contact our schools directly with any comments or concerns, and you can let KISD know how our campuses or the District as a whole can improve using the Improve KISD form at www.KellerISD.net/Improve.
We are looking forward to an exceptional 2019-20 school year, and cannot wait to welcome students back to school on August 14!
