Survey Open January 17-February 9, 2011

Wawasee's schools are asking for feedback from teachers, support staff, administrators, parents, and community members. The KEYS Survey was developed by the National Education Association (NEA) and is a research-based, field-tested process. Collecting and analyzing this data will become an important part of our school improvement process and will allow us to begin a reflective, problem-solving dialog that will help enrich and deepen our school improvement plans and efforts.

The survey will take 10-15 minutes to complete, and parents and community members should take the survey for a particular school in our district. You are welcome to take the survey again for another school, especially if you have students attending more than one school. Each survey can be completed in English or Spanish. Individual responses are anonymous. Since the survey is online, you can complete the survey anywhere you have Internet access.

Instructions for Completing the Survey

  1. Go to and click on Take the Survey.
  2. Type in the school name or zip code of the school for which you are taking the survey: Milford School (46542), North Webster Elementary School (46555), Syracuse Elementary School (46567), Wawasee Middle School (46567), or Wawasee High School (46567).
  3. Choose the school for which you are taking the survey.
  4. Click on Take the Survey.
  5. Choose English or Spanish.
  6. Select Staff Survey, Parent Survey, or Community Survey.
