Article: Stakeholder survey may help determine how our teachers teach

Article by Wynter Smith - SJHS Student Staff Writer

Recently students at SJHS were given the opportunity to take the Stakeholder Survey. The Stakeholder survey is a survey that all students are recommended to take. This survey lets you share your opinion about any of your teachers. The first part of it is multiple choice and the second part is free write. You are allowed to write whatever your opinion is about the teacher that you chose. That’s the basics of the Stakeholder survey.

Alec Noll he said “I love that survey, I to share my opinion to the school about my teachers.” There are obviously going to be some positive and negative reviews.  I don’t think a lot of students know what these surveys are used for. I certainly didn’t when I first took it in seventh grade.

Mr. McGuire Springville Junior Highs principal helps us understand the point and purpose of the Stakeholder Survey. He says “With the Stakeholder Survey, when the responses get submitted I first look at them then they go to the superintendent (his boss). “If there is a serious problem I will talk to the student but if a teacher did something illegal it will be taken to a different level.” Just like students teachers are given a grade, but their grade is based on student reviews. Mr. McGuire meets with every single teacher and tells them about their reviews and suggests things to make him/her a better teacher. He said “If I get a bad review back about I teacher I say “how can I help you get better?”

The Stakeholder Surveys main purpose is to make our current teachers better at teaching.
