2008-09 Central Administration Survey:

We want to hear from you! Your feedback, insights and ideas are very important to us. Please complete this survey through the link below. It should take about 15-20 minutes. This survey will be conducted annually and will be used across the District as a critical source of stakeholder input. There are three key areas of questions:

  • Demographics – a few questions to assist in the analysis of the results
  • Employee Satisfaction – generally trying to understand how you feel about Fort Worth ISD
  • Superintendent’s Leadership, District Strategic Plan and Communications – provide a pulse on what’s working and what’s not
  • Division / Department Customer Service –we are each ‘customers’ of each other, provide constructive feedback for the divisions and departments with whom you work with on a regular basis
