Barack Obama School of Leadership and STEM Families, Please review the Measurable Results Assessment (MRA) Parent Notification Letter. (See Attached) Thank you, Mrs. McClam-Hollimon, Assistant Principal
Leader in Me Measurable Results Assessment (MRA) Parent-Notification Letter April 26, 2021 Dear Parents/Guardians, Our school is implementing a transformational process for 6th – 8th grade students called the Leader in Me, which teaches 21st-century leadership and life skills to students and creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader. Starting the week of Monday, May 3rd, 2021, our school will be conducting surveys to learn more about key areas of strength and areas of needed growth in our school. The data from these surveys will also help us track the impacts of the Leader in Me process and implement key practices. In order for us to have a holistic picture of what is going on in our school, we are asking all full-time staff members, parents/guardians, and students in Grade 6th – 8th grade to participate. Below is additional information about the process and content of the surveys. Parent Participation If you decide to participate, you will be asked to complete a survey (without sharing your name or other identifying information) that will be available through a Web link we will send out on Monday, May 3rd, 2021. The survey is completely voluntary, but we do hope to get feedback on or before Friday, May 7th. The parent/guardian survey takes approximately 12 minutes to complete and will ask questions about your child and about his or her experience in our school. Student Participation If your child is in Grade 6th – 8th grade and decides to participate, he or she will be asked to complete a 20-minute multiple-choice assessment (no identifying information will be requested or collected). The MRA will be confidentially administered by a classroom teacher. Students will privately answer questions about their attitudes and behaviors on a computer at school. They will be able to skip questions and stop anytime they choose. Students who do not wish to participate in the survey or stop participating, or whose parents choose to deny permission for their participation, will be provided with an appropriate alternative activity (e.g. quiet reading) while the surveys are being administered. Results will be summarized by grade level and available to the leadership of our school through a password-protected, data-encrypted website. Please contact Mrs. McClam-Hollimon, Assistant Principal, @ (708) 668 – 9111 if you have additional questions.
