Cape Henlopen School District officials want the community’s help in developing a strategic plan to guide district-wide goals for the next five years.
Assistant Superintendent Jenny Nauman said the district partnered with Hanover Research of Washington, D.C., to create the plan and a survey, which asks respondents about academics, school resources and environment, family and community relations, and operations.
“We want as many people as possible to take the survey,” Nauman said. “Feedback will inform our mission, vision and priorities going forward, and will help us meet the unique needs of our stakeholders.”
Cape Superintendent Bob Fulton said students, staff, parents and community members are invited to take the survey to help the district determine the priorities most important to stakeholders.
Fulton said the community has shown its support of the district by passing several referendums for new schools, and he hopes to have support in developing the strategic plan as well.
“We have a lot of talented people in our community with a lot of experience, and we are open to other ideas we may never have thought of,” he said. “We know we have a great district, but we want Cape to be even better by bringing all perspectives together and working collaboratively.”
Survey responses are strictly confidential. The survey is open through March 4 and can be found at Hanover Research.
