Important Things to Know
- Thompson school district employees have no direct access to this survey application that has been developed by a company funded through the integration grant. District administration, principals, and other evaluators will only have access to district level reports that do not specifically name teachers or students. The only reports that will be accessible to outside parties making a request for data will be those that are shared at the district level.
- Teachers who had fewer than 10 survey responses will not receive teacher-level reports in order to protect student privacy.
- Schools with a low student response rate will not receive a school level report.
