Concordia School Board Reviews Survey Results

The USD 333 Concordia Board of Education reviewed the results of a ThoughtExchange Survey at their meeting on Monday, July 10th. ThoughtExchange is a survey platform that allows participants to give open-ended feedback.

The survey was available for participants from June 14th through June 29th. 442 people participated in the survey. The survey also had Likert scale questions, a five point-scale ranging from one extreme attitude to another. Some of the key results included:

  • 69% agreed/strongly agreed that increasing the size of classrooms should be included in the Concordia Junior/Senior High School improvement plan.
  • 87% agreed/strongly agreed that the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) should be in compliance in the Concordia Junior/Senior High School improvement plan.

Expanding on those results, 55% of participants said USD 333 should pursue a gymnasium that is compliant with the ADA and can accommodate student practices and competitions. The survey showed that participants overall believe that ADA compliance is important and an absolute must. Results also showed that most participants believe academic needs and support should come before athletic space enhancements.
