    Quarter 3 Outcomes

    In a review of the data it is virtually impossible to do a trend analysis of this year’s student responses because of the unprecedented interruption in schooling caused by the pandemic.  However, there are several noteworthy points in the quarter three data. First, the total response was quite strong with 151 students responding. 65% of the respondents stated they did not have to share a device to access school interactions.  This is a positive indicator of the district’s drive to provide chrome books for the students was beneficial. Only five percent said they had no device. Also noteworthy was the number of teacher interactions students identified.  93% identified having regular contact with their teachers. 46 % stated they interacted with their teachers on a daily basis.  Still another response that was affirmative was the awareness of the principal as to what was going on in the classes.  It remained consistently high, even in the pandemic quarter. Teachers were advised to add the principal to their virtual classrooms and apparently the principal’s presence was noted by the students.  70% of the students felt they were receiving an adequate amount of work that was manageable. 80% stated that they felt supported by their teachers.  

    The data suggest that the school has managed to reach a number of students through, and despite, the very immediate switch to virtual learning. In the commentary part of the questionnaires students made supportive statements indicating they recognize that this was a challenge for teachers.  There were also some students who expressed concern over the quantity of work, although the survey itself indicates that the majority thought the work was manageable. 

    For purposes of accountability, the student data has been compelling in that it reveals unknown strengths (such as the awareness of the principal) and areas of concern, (such as verbal bullying in the school).  The third quarter data seems to indicate that this forced separation has caused both teachers and students to make rapid and significant adjustments and that students recognize this.
