{January 3, 2016} ARNOLD, MO – Patron Insight, a Kansas City based market survey company with 25 years of experience working with school districts, delivered a report of a phone survey to Fox C-6 School District stakeholders at the December 20th Board of Education meeting.

With 400 phone surveys completed by Fox C-6 residents, the survey results illustrate a geographically diverse sampling of the values of Fox C-6 stakeholders. “I am incredibly pleased with the results of the survey,” said Superintendent Jim Wipke. “It illustrates that our community feels we are headed in the right direction and it highlights some of our strengths as well as some ways we can improve.”

Overall, 82% of respondents felt the school district is headed in the right direction. Responses were collected from adult taxpayers within the Fox C-6 attendance boundaries and included current district parents as well as individuals who have never had students in Fox C-6. 92% of those surveyed who currently have students in the district felt it was headed in the right direction. “This shows that the families we serve recognize our mission to provide the best possible education for students,” Wipke said. “But we also see some areas where we can improve and we will continue to work to ensure that all of our stakeholders see the value we provide our students.”

The information from the survey results will be used to help evaluate the District’s progress with its Comprehensive School Improvement Plan, a five year “roadmap” designed to provide direction on major goals that the community values. “It’s an exciting time to be a part of the Fox C-6 Family,” Wipke said. “We’ve have a tremendous upside and a very bright future.”
