The New York State Education Department (NYSED) requires school districts to annually survey the school community on a number of topics and issues. The Mount Veron City School District is conducting our annual Diagnostic Tool of School District Effectiveness (DTSDE) survey and we encourage your participation. The DTSDE Survey is a comprehensive approach to evaluate and measure stakeholder feedback to inform school and/or district reviews. Stakeholder feedback is a requirement of the Diagnostic Tool for School and District Effectiveness (DTSDE) mandated by the New York State Education Department. These surveys will be administered to parents/guardians (district-wide), staff (instructional, and students in grades 3-12. Questions are aligned with the six tenets; District Leadership and Capacity, School Leader Practices and Decisions, Curriculum Development and Support, Teacher Practices and Decisions, Student Social and Emotional Development Health, and Family and Community Engagement. Instructional staff and students will complete the surveys within their school building. We invite all parents to complete the survey by following the link below. https://survey.k12insight.com/r/MVCSD2019Parents
