The Saranac Lake Central School Board is reaching out to the community to assist in their efforts to refine the vision for 2014 and beyond.. Saranac Lake Central School Superintendent Diane Fox told the board at a recent meeting that she hopes to create a set of questionnaires that will give them a better feel for where they want to be headed.. Fox says the first stakeholder survey is designed to be short and sweet.
Question number two asks for your opinion about how to prioritize the challenges facing the district. It includes 10 possible choices plus a few opportunities to add your own.. In both cases, the survey asks you to choose only five from all of the choices.
The Choices related to the challenges include maintenance of the physical facilities, maintaining the current breadth of extracurricular activities given the funding restraints, meeting the emotional needs of students, new performance expectations, keeping up with technology, student safety and security, the flow of information, personalized learning.. Giving students an equal opportunity to excel academically, or maintaining the district’s standards while responding to local, state and federal economic conditions..
It also asks for your view of the characteristics of the Highly Skilled Student or Employee and it asks for your three highest priorities as the district prepares them for graduation…
The survey was published today at the Saranac Lake High School website and Fox says she hopes to leave the links to the survey up through the Thanksgiving Break to give parents the opportunity to find it online, or to give their thoughts during the Parent Teacher Conferences..
