Survey Results – What our Customers & Colleagues are Saying

Hi everyone and welcome to the Pride Surveys Blog. My name is Jay Gleaton and I’m the CEO here at Pride. We are going to use this space to provide useful tips and tricks to help you with the survey process, insightful looks into the data that we are gathering and best practices for talking to schools about conducting student surveys.


Today I want to take a look into a customer survey that we have had open for the last few months. If you want to take it you can find it here I’ll end it at the end of May 2013. We decided to use the survey process the same way that we want schools to use their student surveys, which is to identify needs by using the data and then addressing those needs.


The responses came from various people in education, from teachers to principals to superintendents, curriculum directors and counselors. We also received responses from many in the field in prevention and treatment including drug education and community coordinators, treatment service providers and safety consultants.


People are collecting survey data to get funding from a variety of grants including, Drug Free Communities, Tobacco Grants, SPF SIG grants, STOP ACT grantees, Title I, II, Grants to Reduce Alcohol Abuse, Gambling Grants, Safe Schools Healthy Students, among many small and large local, state, and foundation funded grants.


With all of this funding, it is interesting to note that the number one way that people are using the data overall is not just to provide information back to the agencies that are providing the grants, but rather to help overall school improvement (83.7%).


Grants and funding come in at about 50% of the people who responded and linking data to student achievement is about the same percentage. We have some very interesting data where we have cross-tabulated various questions from our student surveys to standardized test scores, but that’s enough data to fill up an entire new post. Which is a great idea for a new post!
I will do my best to bring you content that matters and can help you make a difference. I’m excited about this opportunity to share our thoughts and we will continue to make improvements to the blog as we go.
