Two area school districts are surveying their communties about what they think the schools need.
The North Pike and Walthall County school districts are both conducting needs assessments and asking parents, students, faculty, staff and community members to take the surveys.
Survey respondents will be asked about family and community outreach by the districts, curriculum and instruction, and school facilities and organization.
Results of the survey will be compiled into reports for the districts that will also encompass test score analyses and “other school success measures,” according to North Pike School District’s website.
District officials will use those reports for strategic planning, examining school practices and directing federal funds where needed.
North Pike respondents can obtain paper copies of the survey from the district’s central office on Jaguar Trail, Summit.
The surveys will be open until early March.
