Hudson CSD shares results of survey

Hudson City School District is sharing the results of a recent  survey that asked teachers, students and parents to give their thoughts about how well their schools are performing in important areas such as district leadership and capacity, school leader practices and decisions, and curriculum development and support, among others.

Designed, administered and analyzed by independent technology and communications firm K12 Insight, the survey indicated many areas of success, as well as a few areas for improvement. According to Superintendent Maria Suttmeier, “The survey showed that our district has made a number of advancements, particularly in school safety. And looking toward a bright future, we will keep building on our accomplishments, while striving to improve areas of concern.”

Notable findings include:

  • 90% of parents are satisfied with the size of their school.
  • Approximately 81% of teachers agree that their classrooms are physically conducive to learning.
  • Nearly 70% of secondary students and 85% of elementary students say their principal leads their school well.
  • An overwhelming majority of teachers (97%) agree that their subject area is strong, relevant and aligned with state standards.
  • More than 80% of secondary students agree that they know what it takes to do well on tests.

  • A large percentage of elementary students (82%) agree that they are safe in school, while 74% of secondary students say there is a teacher, counselor or other staff member they can talk to at school about problems.

The district reviewed these results with site-level administrators and shared their findings with the Board of Education on Monday, March 23, 2015.
