Marysville schools want to hear your voice

A recently launched interactive page allows for a more direct connection to Marysville School District officials.

 


Giving feedback to Marysville School District leaders, departments and schools may be getting easier with the launch of the district’s new ‘YourVoice’ page.

The webpage at http://www.msvl.k12.wa.us/home/yourvoice launched in early December.

It allows for interested citizens to provide suggestions, criticisms and compliments directly to district leaders, specific schools or specific departments.

“All comments, suggestions, compliments and concerns will reach me and my administrative team and will be read and reviewed,” wrote Marysville superintendent Becky Berg on the website.

Berg encourages anyone who has questions, ideas or concerns to write in. All surveys and responses are strictly confidential and no one in the district will be able to identify you, she said.

“Every district employee is here to provide our students with the highest quality education possible and one way to achieve that is by listening to you. This is a collaborative effort, so we need to understand your opinions and values,” she wrote.

People who submit their feedback can also request a response to their concerns.

“While I may not be able to personally respond to every message, I do promise that all of your feedback will be read, reviewed and taken into account,” Berg wrote.

Citizens who use the ‘YourVoice’ page can also register their e-mail to be reminded of other upcoming discussions of important district issues that will take place online.

“This [webpage] is also where we’ll publish a calendar of our ongoing two-way conversations with various groups. These conversations will be in the form of surveys that will run between specific dates and will focus on specific issues and will help us understand your priorities - and the reasons you hold those priorities,” writes Berg.

She encourages everyone interested to answer as honestly as possible.

“Our public schools are the bedrock of democracy. And each child deserves the best we can offer. Please join me in this ongoing conversation,” she said.
