HCPS’ strategic plan, Destination 2025, has four overarching cornerstones for improvement: safety and wellness, academic growth, equity and opportunity, and relationships. One way HCPS measures progress in these areas is through annual student, family and staff surveys. These surveys collect input on a broad range of topics related to the strategic plan, such as relationships among students, families and staff members; equity and inclusiveness; and student engagement.
HCPS works with the Metropolitan Educational Research Consortium at the VCU School of Education to conduct the surveys in March and April each year. Feedback from students, families and staff members is essential as we monitor our progress and ensure that our schools foster an inclusive, safe and supportive climate for everyone.
