The Jefferson County School District kicks off an annual survey today that will ask students, teachers and parents their opinions about academics in the district, as well as school culture.
Evaluation specialist Dr. Marco Munoz says the district is trying to measure new efforts it has put forth in trying to educate the whole child, not just the mind.
“This is not about teaching a subject anymore, this is about teaching a kid,” says Munoz, “and a kid is not only like the brain, you know? It has also all these social and emotional components.”
Munoz says all students and teachers will be given the chance to take the survey electronically at school.
Parents who are registered with their online Parent Portal will be invited to take the survey online. Other parents will be sent a paper copy.
