Elkhart Community Schools asking for public's feedback on district plans

ELKHART, Ind. - Officials with Elkhart Community Schools are asking for community input on a number of topics related to future school district plans. Members of the public can now take short surveys to help the district collect information.

The survey covers the following topics:

  • Improved collaboration and communication between board and district leadership
  • Developing and improving community connections
  • Loss of students, families, and staff to other districts
  • Public relations and community perceptions
  • School safety, security, and school discipline
  • Trust and faith in district leadership

Each survey takes five to seven minutes to complete.

Participants can take all of the survey or take the surveys of most interest to them.

All surveys are offered in English and Spanish.

The deadline to take the surveys is 5 p.m. on December 23.

In January, district leaders will host focus groups to discuss the findings of the surveys. Those interested in participating in a focus group can email [email protected] with their name, home address, and role in the district (parent, teaching staff, community member, etc.).

In September, the district partnered with School IQ/Sitelogiq to create a long-term feasibility/facility study. So far, School IQ has completed a full evaluation of district properties and building assets.

The agency is now working on a demographic study of the district.
