Parent Survey Shows Positive Results
At the district's parent-teacher conferences in November, we conducted a ten question parent survey to get a better understanding of parent thoughts and opinions. A summary highlighting some of the interesting results is provided below.
Approximately twenty-percent of our families replied to our parent survey. Given this response rate, we believe that the results are representative of our parents’ opinions on a variety of school-related issues. The overall results were tremendously positive.
Similar to previous surveys, some of the most overwhelmingly positive responses were related to the school environment.
• One of the most universally positive responses was to the question about our schools as caring environments. 89% of respondents agreed or strongly agreed to the statement: “My child’s teacher really cares about my child”. In fact, only one respondent did not respond positively to that question.
• Also, similar to previous surveys, 91% of respondents agreed or strongly agreed that their child felt positively about school.
• This year, over half of the parents, 55%, indicated that the quality of education their child was receiving was outstanding or above average. Overwhelmingly, 97% of respondents indicated that the quality of education was average or better.
The staff and Board of Education at Burr Ridge 180 are tremendously proud of our parents’ satisfaction and support of our schools. We will continue to work with our parents and community partners to provide the best possible learning opportunities for our students.
