School survey is in the mail

September 25, 2012
ALTON — It's time to look for the Alton School District survey in your mailbox. This is not a piece of mail to be thrown away, it's the public's chance to give an honest opinion about the various options to update Alton Central School. Look for "Alton School District" on the return address and take the time to fill out and return the survey, it should be arriving in your mailboxes this week and should take only five to 10 minutes to complete.

This survey is the result of a lot of hard work and collaboration among the Alton School Board, the Buildings and Grounds Committee, the UNH Survey Center, and community members, who provided valuable feedback and insight into what information the survey needed to gather. Having all of these groups working together has helped to create a survey that ensures all voices and perspectives are considered.

The purpose of this survey is to get current, accurate information from the community about the direction of the school facilities. The results will then help to guide the board in making the best possible decisions for the future of the building project. Here are a few key things people will need to know:

The survey is due by Oct. 5.

There is no cost to complete the survey or return it, you will simply fold the paper with the UNH address on the outside, tape it together and put it back in the mail.

All results are confidential, there is no way for anyone to know how an individual responded.

Each household will only get one survey, but if there is more than one adult (over 18) in the home who would like to fill one out, contact the Survey Center and they will send another one.

The survey will be analyzed quickly, the UNH team is planning on attending the Oct. 22 Alton School Board meeting with the initial results.

The Alton School District thanks the public in advance for their willingness to be a part of this important process, as public input is important to the current and future education of Alton's children.

Questions can be addressed to Bill Lander, Superintendent, at blander@alton.k12.nh.us or at 875-7890 or Sydney Leggett, Principal of ACS, at sleggett@alton.k12.nh.us or 875-0367 or you can contact the UNH Survey Center directly at Chad.Novak@unh.edu or 862-4858.
