Junior Senior High Educational Effectiveness Survey (EES)

Dear Community,

Next week, we will be administering the Educational Effectiveness Survey (EES). This survey will provide our staff and leadership valuable information and feedback about of school environment.  We plan to use the data to create building and administration goals.

On Monday, October 9, a survey link will be made available for our community on the school website. The survey will be emailed to staff and students. We ask that you please complete and submit the survey by Thursday, October 12.

The survey questions were developed by the Center for Educational Effectiveness, a Bellevue, Washington-based educational research firm, in collaboration with the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction for Washington State.  This survey has been used with over 750,000 educational stakeholders in the Western U.S.   Based on these experiences, here are some notes/details:

  • This survey is formative, not evaluative.  There is no “final score” that indicates “good” or “bad.”  The data from the survey will be used to stimulate improvement conversations with staff and leadership.

  • The context of this survey is primarily the individual school building.  There are some “district” level items and these will specifically reference “In this district...”. The Junior-Senior High building will receive their building-level reports and the district leadership team will receive district-level summary views.

The survey is confidential and anonymous.  No personally identifying information is attached to the responses.  CEE protects the confidentiality of each respondent and does not disaggregate into groups smaller than 10.

Thank you in advance for your participation in this survey.
