District utilizes survey as tool in continuous improvement process
The Wahoo Public Schools believes in a process of continuous improvement to ensure the positive growth of our school system while focusing on the identified needs of our students, in collaboration with the greater school community.
As part of our continuous school improvement practices and to meet accreditation requirements (Rule 10), Wahoo Public Schools conducts Parent/Family, Student and Staff Surveys which seek input on various school-related topics. The information collected is used to help guide the school district in keeping abreast of important topics and feelings related to our school community. The information is also an essential part of our Continuous Improvement (CIP) and Nebraska Framework accreditation processes. We are in Year 5 of this process and will host an external review team this spring (February 2021).
While we have many things to celebrate, we will remain focused on engaging all families, students and staff in the process of continuous improvement. Thank you for your commitment to the process and for sharing your children with us each and every day!
