School Perceptions Survey

Dear Parents and Community Members,

The Carlton and Wrenshall School Districts are reaching out to all District residents, including parents and staff, in the next few weeks to gather input regarding District operations and educational facility needs. As consolidation talks continue between the two districts it was agreed upon that a community-wide survey was needed to help gauge the level of community support.

We have hired School Perceptions, an independent educational research firm, to conduct the survey and ensure all responses are kept confidential. We are asking that all district residents, parents (in-district and open enrolled) and staff respond to a survey that will be emailed out in the coming weeks from School Perceptions.

To ensure data integrity, each survey invitation/link code can only be used once. As such, you must access the survey through your email invitation, not a forwarded email or link. The survey access number will not identify you; it simply links you to the District’s survey. However, the software is able to track survey completion via the link code and encourage participation of non-respondents. School Perceptions’ privacy policy guarantees your email address will not be used/shared for any purpose other than the contracted survey.

The survey will be available the week of January 6th and the last day for submitting the survey is January 27th.

Residents, Parents/Guardians and Staff will receive a hard copy with instructions to complete the survey online.

If you prefer to complete the survey via hard copy requests can be made by contacting Beth Peterson in the Wrenshall District Office.

The survey results will be shared at the Joint Carlton and Wrenshall Board Meeting on February 11.
