LA PLATA, Md. (March 14, 2011) Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) is participating in a new study that will help school districts improve communication with parents and their school communities. Approximately 100 school districts in the United States and Canada have signed on to participate in the study, which is being conducted at no cost to CCPS.
The research is part of a communication accountability program of the National School Public Relations Association (NSPRA), a non-profit organization dedicated to improving communication in school communities. The survey firm K12 Insight Inc., is conducting the survey. The survey will be sent by e-mail beginning on Monday, March 7. CCPS provided a confidential list of 3,000 randomly selected e-mail addresses for the purpose of the survey.
All responses are confidential and school system staff will receive the results from the survey in late spring. The results will be used to refine current communication efforts and improve their effectiveness. The complete results from the 100 school districts will announced in July by NSPRA and no identification will be given to individual school systems.
We are pleased to offer this survey and we hope many of our parents will choose to participate. Learning more on what is effective in communication will improve a very critical link between our schools and parents, Superintendent James E. Richmond said.
