STAFF SURVEY RESULTS - SUPERINTENDENT AREAS OF FOCUS
In October, the Superintendent Areas of Focus electronic survey was sent to all district staff to gather input on areas of focus and qualities staff feel are most important for the next Superintendent of the Spring Grove Area School District. The valuable data collected has been shared with the Board of School Directors to screen candidates, develop interview questions, and select finalists.
Staff used the areas of focus from the Superintendent job description and annual performance review and ranked them from most important to least important. Overall, the survey results reflected that staff placed the highest value on the following:
- Approachability and visibility
- Community engagement
- Staff development
- District operations
The Board of School Directors greatly appreciates the staff's feedback and time in completing the survey.
