To All Students, Parents, Educators and Community Members
Speak Up! Your ideas are important to us!
Open October 16th
– January 13th, 2017
Be a part of the conversation! Starting on Oct. 16st
we will be participating in the Speak Up national research project. Speak Up is
the first survey designed to help parents share their ideas directly with
schools and national policymakers. As key stakeholders, Speak Up provides
parents with a mechanism for expressing their views to the administrators at
their child(ren)’s school and district about key issues impacting their child(ren)'s
education. Since 2003, Speak Up has collected and shared the views of over 3.4
million students, teachers, and parents from all 50 states, as well as
internationally. By participating in Speak Up, parents are expressing their
views to a wider audience of local, state, and national policy makers as well
as the business community—and contributing to the national dialog about
science, technology, and preparing students for the 21st century workforce.
The online survey is open to students, educators and parents;
it’s quick and easy to get involved. To
take the survey visit: http://www.speakup4schools.org/speakup2016/
and click either the green target titled "Students" or the light blue target titled "Parents"
For our staff members, please click on the dark blue target titled "Educators" and for those of you in our wonderful San Elijo community, there is another green target titled "Community" just for you...your voice matters too!
NOTE: In order for students to receive the community service for both their survey and a parent's survey, each participant must print the last page of the survey after clicking the "Complete Survey" button. At the top of that page, you will see,
"Your survey has been accepted. Thank you for being part of Speak Up 2016. Your ideas will make a difference in education."
Right above that you will see a "Print Page" link and right below it you will see the unique Survey Identifier number, which must be printed.
For more detailed information about the Community Service, please contact the History department at SEMS.
