Beginning April 1, you will have the opportunity to participate in the online Oklahoma Nine Essential Elements Survey. This survey allows you to share your views on important elements of school effectiveness. Your participation in the family portion of the survey will help us understand the conditions at your child’s school and guide improvement. This family survey, based on the Oklahoma Nine Essential Elements’ framework, identifies how school performance on nine factors or “essentials” can lead to important student outcomes. The framework also provides a blueprint for school improvement in Oklahoma. This evidence-based framework is divided into ninety indicators representing all aspects of school operation. The family-level Oklahoma Nine Essential Elements Survey Reports will be generated from the Oklahoma State Department of Education and distributed to leadership teams (including district leadership) to carefully analyze as part of a comprehensive needs assessment. The survey results will be given to schools and districts at the regional meetings in May 2019. Survey administration begins Thursday, April 1 and ends Friday, April 16. Included in this letter is a link and/or QR code to log-in to the survey and participate. All responses are completely confidential. No names or other unique identifiers are connected with individual responses or used in any report. If you need help with technology, please stop by the elementary or high school office and we will be happy to help you with one of our computers. We also provide free Wi-Fi at both sites and the Yale Public Library can also assist you. Thank you for your participation and for providing your perspective as we move towards increasing student growth and achievement in our district. If you have any questions about the survey, please contact Rocky Kennedy, Emily Nickell or Heather Bledsoe.
