Community survey on Davenport school district sizing coming soon

Davenport Community School District

The Davenport Community School District (DCSD) is continuing a community-based facilities planning process by reaching out to all district residents to gather input regarding facility needs through a community-wide survey.

The survey is a critical step in the district’s development of a long-range facility plan that will guide the grade configuration, number of school buildings, and facility investments in the near future and beyond. The survey outlines potential long-term plans for DCSD’s buildings and asks citizens for feedback on two potential grade configurations.

To assist with data-gathering efforts, DCSD is working with School Perceptions LLC, an independent firm with expertise in conducting school district surveys. All survey data is returned to School Perceptions to ensure anonymity.

Households will receive a paper survey in the mail in the near future. Residents can either complete the paper survey and mail it back to School Perceptions in the envelope provided or log on to the website listed in the survey and take it online. The survey data is regulated by a survey access code that is provided on the mailed survey. If a household would like additional surveys for other adults in the household, they may call the district office.

“Our schools play one of the most important roles in our community,” said DCSD Superintendent TJ Schneckloth. “As we make decisions that will guide the direction of our district for years to come, we want to ensure that everyone has a voice in the planning process. This survey allows us to do that. Please take the survey and share your voice.”

Survey results will be presented at the Nov. 7 school board meeting and will also be available on the district website at davenportschools.org.
