Poll finds high ratings for LISD education

Mon Jul 15, 2019

Respondents to a district survey gave high marks for the quality of education students receive at Longview Independent School District.

LISD Community Relations held an online survey from June 17th through July 12, asking local residents and stakeholders to rate the district in a variety of categories on a "star scale," from one to five stars.

Of the 389 respondents: 43 percent gave LISD five stars, with 22 percent giving four stars, and 25 percent giving three stars. Seven percent gave LISD two stars, with three percent giving just one star.

Respondents were also given the opportunity to rate other aspects of the district, from the administration and board of trustees, to departments like Transportation, Finance, Human Resources, as well as how area residents rate local sources of LISD information and even the Community Relations Department itself.

The poll was created by LISD Communication Specialist Matthew Prosser using the SurveyMonkey website, and presented to board members during the July 15 regular meeting.

"Our goal for this survey was to give our board members a snapshot of public sentiment as we continue to prepare for the coming school year," he said.

Prosser said the LISD Community Relations Department is currently planning more surveys and polls for the future.

"We are always looking for better and more efficient ways to communicate with our community, and better serve the excellent students and staff of our district," he said.
