Community survey to guide district strategic plan

Cedar Springs — Parents and other community members have until next Wednesday, Dec. 20, to provide input on Cedar Springs Public Schools’ performance and needs as part of the district’s strategic planning process.

In its Red Hawk Monthly newsletter, the district announced the School Climate Survey, launched to gauge community opinions on issues pertaining to the Cedar Springs environment, from how welcoming the schools are to the consistency and effectiveness of discipline in school buildings and on buses.

Information from the survey will be used to inform the FLIGHT Plan 2.0, which will serve as a guide for district priorities over the next three years.

Responses will remain confidential, according to a statement from Superintendent Scott Smith and Board of Education President Heidi Reed. 

“On behalf of the Board of Education and the entire Cedar Springs Public Schools district, we thank you again for your contribution to our strategic planning process,” Smith and Reed said in the statement.

Questions about the survey can be directed to cspstogether@csredhawks.org.
