Educational Effectiveness Survey
Everett Public Schools are committed to continuous improvement and as part of our school improvement process, every school in the district develops and implements a School Improvement Plan that is tailored to its specific needs each year. Everett schools analyze a variety of information sources – including student performance trends, state comparisons and staff/parent perception surveys – to identify improvement goals that are specific, data-driven and measurable. To help us understand our strengths and challenges in areas known to impact educational effectiveness, we would appreciate your input on how Whittier Elementary is doing.
