Today the FCNP published my letter to the editor suggesting that the School Board conduct an employee survey to measure job satisfaction and morale, and inform program and budget decisions. You can find the letter here: https://fcnp.com/2016/02/04/letters-to-the-editor-20/
Early this year I submitted a proposal to the School Board that it establish policy requiring an annual employee survey. Here is the text I proposed:
Proposed new School Board Policy 8.46:
“At least annually, the School Board will survey all school personnel, including professional staff, support staff, and administrative personnel regarding employee morale and job satisfaction. The survey shall include but not be limited to the level of satisfaction with and feedback on salary, benefits, working conditions, planning time, requirements, evaluations, facilities, management, support, needs, and level and allocation of resources. The survey shall be anonymous and conducted by a third party that shall provide the results to the School Board and the Superintendent.”
Let me know what you think!
