MAPLE PARK – Kaneland School District 302 officials are asking parents to tell them how the district is doing.

This month, the district is conducting its first parent satisfaction survey. Kaneland School Superintendent Jeff Schuler said the survey is part of the district’s ongoing efforts to strengthen communication between the district and the community.

“The results will identify our strengths, as well as where we can improve or get better,” Schuler said. “We will look at the results with staff and the school board.”

The survey started Feb. 6, and parents can fill out the survey through Feb. 18.

The survey is posted on the district’s website, www.kaneland.org.

The survey was designed to provide a comprehensive assessment of the district in the areas of teaching and learning, school climate, communication, technology and overall fulfillment of the district’s mission to graduate all students college, career and community ready.

Some of the questions on the survey ask parents whether their children are getting the appropriate amount of homework and how well the teaching style of their children’s teachers match their learning style.

Other questions ask how well administrators at their child’s school create a school environment that helps children learn and how well the activities offered at their child’s school match his or her interests.

“We got a lot of responses immediately,” he said.
