Multiple opportunities for public input were provided throughout the process.
Early in the FMP process (August and September of 2018), an online survey was sent to all Mt. Diablo USD’s Principals. The survey focused the existing functionality of the facilities and asked for each Principal to provide their top priorities for long-term improvements at their site.
Teacher & Staff Survey
In December 2018, an online survey was distributed to all teachers and staff. Similar to the Principal survey, the questions focused on the existing functionality of the facilities and asked respondents to rate their top priorities for existing spaces that require the greatest amount of improvement as well as their top priorities for new spaces or enhancements.
An online survey was distributed to students, mainly in the 5th, 7th, and 11th grades as well as to students enrolled in Adult Education programs. Surveys were available in both English and Spanish and focused on the existing functionality of the spaces. Students were also asked to select from a series of options, what they would change about the space in question.
Parent & Community Survey
A survey was distributed to parents and other community members. This survey was available in English and Spanish, online as well as in print form. After a few initial questions to get to know the audience and their associated school site, respondents were asked to select their top priorities regarding existing spaces that currently require the greatest amount of improvement, then to select their priorities regarding desired new spaces or enhancements at the school they selected.
Learning Spaces Visioning Charrette
Taking information learned during the Focus Group meeting with the Directors of Elementary, Middle, High School Programs, the Director of Special Education, and the Director of Instructional Support, a charrette (workshop) was held with District-selected teacher-leaders to better understand the way programs are currently being implemented and how facilities could better assist the learning environment. The information gathered during this charrette is used to create the Program Vision documents. See the Vision tab for more information.
