CCSD employees say employees can skip questions they don’t like to answer. According to the CCSD, the survey is confidential and the responses are only made available to the district in aggregated data form.
“We’re grateful that the Panorama Education Staff Survey will help the district assess how we can better serve our employees during this difficult time,” added Brooks.
“Our staff are working harder than ever to ensure that our students continue to receive the quality of teaching they deserve in distance learning, and as a school principal, I want to make sure we clearly understand the challenges our staff are facing,” said CCSD -Superintendent Dr. Jesus F. Jara.
“Panorama Education’s employee survey enables us to gather critical information and provide the support and assistance our employees need. I encourage all CCSD staff to take the survey, ”added Jarads.
CCSD also reached out to the Police Officers Association of CCSD (POA) about the survey.
“The Clark County Association of School Administrators and Professional-Technical Employees takes the mental health and well-being of our members and all employees in the Clark County School District seriously. It is our sincere desire that the district use the information obtained from this service to provide the necessary care and support to all members of the CCSD family in need, ”said Derek Bellow, President of CCASAPE.
“In these unprecedented times, we often hear the stress that students and educators face on a daily basis. It is important to understand the toll our present circumstances have had on not only students but also educators. CCEA believes that educators can only best support the well-being of students by looking after their own well-being first, ”said CCEA President Marie Neisess.
“As educators, we are all aware that the social and emotional needs of our children and our colleagues are nothing new. These services were needed before and after the pandemic and are needed during and after the pandemic. There is no substitute for keeping track of our children, and the goal of this program is just that – ensuring the well-being of our students. Based on previous data, this is a program that works. We therefore believe that the district should apply it more widely, ”said ESEA President Jan Giles.
“We support the program and approve the Panorama Education platform so that we can continue working on this important issue for our community,” added Giles.
“Members of the Police Administrators Association (PAA) are delighted to support the district’s efforts to ensure the general well-being of CCSD staff and students,” said PAA President Captain Ken Young.
