Communication Audit Focus Groups for Parents, Community, and Staff
The Spring-Ford Area School District (SFASD) has contracted with the Chester County Intermediate Unit (CCIU) to conduct a district-wide communication audit. We are looking forward to working with SFASD stakeholders to identify recommendations that will allow SFASD to build on its strengths, target strategic areas of improvement and increase the efficiency and impact of SFASD’s communication initiatives.
Share Your Insights: To assist SFASD in the process, we invite you to participate in one of three focus group being held via Zoom. The purpose of the focus group is to gather your perceptions of the district and insights regarding SFASD’s communication practices.
In order to promote open and honest dialogue, representatives from the CCIU will be conducting the focus group and no members of the SFASD leadership team will be participating in or observing the sessions. Responses will be presented in the aggregate with no specific attribution to any one person.
