Scottsbluff Schools pleased with parent survey results

The Scottsbluff Public School District has released results of their 2013 Parent Opinion Survey. The District has just over 3,000 students, and there were 1,052 respondents to the survey, and Superintendent Rick Myles said the survey shows an increase in satisfaction in all areas over May 2011.

He says they've focused on a couple areas based on the last survey. One is the question of how kids treat each other. Myles says if kids are going to learn in school they need to feel comfortable with each other and feel supported by one another. Myles says that went up and was one of their biggest increases. He says another one was parents perception on how much their child was helped at school, which was also one of the biggest jumps in comparison with last year's survey.
One survey was filled out per family for each school building in the District.

The District also announced that they have had so much success with their Campus Supervisor program through S.O.S. Security, they have decided to make it a district program. Myles says the current staff will remain and will now be District employees. Myles thanked S.O.S. Security for contracting with the District for the first two years in their Campus Supervisor program.

Myles says they will also be adding another Scottsbluff Police School Resource Officer to the mix. He says their priority is to ensure their students are and feel safe at school. After having great success with the SRO program and Officer James Todd at the High School. So, Myles says they are going to try to replicate that at Bluffs Middle School. There will be two full time officers, one at the High School and one at the Middle School, but with both serving the entire District.
