North Fayette Valley Stakeholder Survey Report

The North Fayette Valley school board administered a stakeholder survey from Dec. 16-Jan. 6th which resulted in 192 total responses from students, teachers, support staff, parents, community members, administrators, and alumni.  The results provided some great insights for the district in regard to strengths, areas of concern and what stakeholders are looking for in a new superintendent.  The board reviewed the report from the Grundmeyer Leader Services consultants and identified the following qualifications as top priorities for the next district superintendent:
