Measuring Engagement
• The district was tasked with creating a system that would measure the engagement of
students and the community, including parents.
• Involvement, or engagement, looks different at elementary than it does at high school.
• Climate Surveys: Parent and Student Climate Surveys are an efficient way to measure the
respondent’s perception of how well the district is doing in the different categories.
• Opportunities: Teachers and schools regularly offer students the opportunity to engage
through before and after school clubs, events, special programs, etc. Because these
opportunities are structured in a variety of different ways from school to school and
from elementary to secondary schools, the committee chose to count the opportunities
instead of attempting to capture the numbers of students participating.
• Enrollment: Where it was appropriate, the committee chose to consider the percent of
eligible students enrolled in subjects beyond required minimums, believing that choice
demonstrates a high level of engagement.
