From the Brentwood School District: Phones will be ringing across the Brentwood School District over the next few weeks as a comprehensive survey of patron opinion takes place. Brentwood School District officials said the survey of 400 households will provide insight into what residents think about the district’s strengths, challenges, and priorities.
“This survey will give us an outstanding opportunity to hear from a cross-section of our patrons their opinions about our performance, and what our priorities should be for the future,” said Brian Lane, superintendent. “We’ll hear from all geographic parts of the district, people of all different ages, and everyone from newcomers to long-term residents.”
The 10- to 15-minute survey will touch on a wide variety of topics and allow residents the opportunity to share their comments.
The survey was designed by ExcellenceK12, a Missouri-based market research organization that has worked with many school districts across the Midwest on similar research.
Participants will be selected totally at random, and all responses will be kept completely confidential.
In general, calls will be placed between 7 and 9 p.m. on weekdays, and noon to 6 p.m. on Saturdays. The caller ID may show “Market Research Associates” or it may simply show an 816 or 913 area code, because the company uses calling facilities in both Missouri and Kansas.
For those who are not contacted at random on the phone, an online version of the survey will be available on the district’s website at www.brentwoodmoschools.org.
The survey process will take about two weeks to complete, and the Brentwood School District is asking patrons to listen for their phones to ring!
“We really want to hear from you,” said Lane. “So, if you get a phone call on this survey, please participate, and please let us know what you think.”
